Little People are Funny!

I love the little people, love, love, love them. If pregnancy and childbirth weren't fraught with so many evolutionary glitches it is something I'd probably have done an additional time or two, but until the goddess gets cracking on Gestation 4.0 I'm staying put.

Here are two mixed media pieces I've recently completed, they are the first in a series of works centered around images of children. There's nothing like creating what you love and loving what you've created.

This is my niece K'maia (Laughs) my sister, her mom is deep in the perils of pilfering toddlerhood. The last few times we've spoken, through bated breath she repeatedly murmured something about being driven, "crazy". This is my artistic interpretation of her suffering.

These guys are probably about my age now judging from the wingspan of their collars! I picked this photo up while Favorite Guy and I were out and about in Phoenix's Historic District. I was laughing as soon as I lifted it from the bin of vintage photos. Did I mention that poorly behaved children-not my own of course, make me insurmountably giddy? Prints of this ACEO are available here.

Children are appealing because they are children, period. New. Eager. Alive. Open. And they haven't done anything really awful to their eyebrows yet. -Lenore Skenazy
