Today I was trying to figure out what (if anything) to blog about, and I got inspired to post some artwork. I must admit that this inspiration came to me after looking at some beautiful paintings by American Impressionist Mary Cassatt on Kate Harvey's "Something Ivory" blog. (Kate is the wife of my second oldest son's college friend, and if you haven't discovered her lovely blog yet, you should check it out.)
Reading Kate's post today got me feeling very artsy-fartsy. (Time out: you're allowed to use that f-word these days, right? When I was a kid, saying that humdinger within earshot of a parent would get you a mouthful of Ivory soap; but I think the term is acceptable in this crazy 21st century world we're living in.) Anyway, I was trying to decide which famous piece of art I could showcase on my blog today (which would make me a total copycat, I know!), when I stumbled upon this colored-pencil and ink drawing I did in 1992. I remember that I used a photo of myself holding son #3 as a rough model, but I took a bit of artistic license with it (and by that I mean it doesn't look nearly as much like the photo as I wish it did).
Okay, for anyone out there reading this who has met my cute little granddaughters, I have a question for you: do you see the resemblance, too, or am I imagining it?
