So many kids, I don't know what to do.

What do you think of the latest portrait I painted?  Not bad, huh?

All right.  Fine.  You got me.  I did not paint this. My mom did.  (For real.  I am not lying this time.  She is an artist.)  This is a portrait of my nephew she won awards for a few years ago.  I could not possibly paint this which is why I have suspicions that I am adopted.

These are two random chicks on the beach.  HEY!  This picture used to be hanging in my house!  I thought I was robbed.  (Mom has since explained she took it to clean it.  Hello?  Can I have it back?  Ever?)
(More on my mom's burglar style of decorating some other time.)

This is her current work in progress.  It is a picture of Saige on the swing Mom and Dad had in the backyard of the house I grew up in.  (The swing was really in the yard...the pond is artistic license. They moved from there about two years ago.  I think this is going to turn out to be the best one!
It isn't finished yet.  Mom wants her to have actual fingers in the paining...and maybe even feet.  I don't know.
These are just a few examples of her work.  Enough to show why I expect to find out any day now that I am adopted.  Here is some of my artwork.  I give picture of Saigie.
Isn't she darling?
These hops are darling too. Check them out.


Whew.  That was a lot.  I need a nap now.  Who am I kidding?  I always need a nap.
