"It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."

This is probably the first painting I have done in about 20 years. It's not perfect by any means...but it is something. I could spend another 20 years trying to get the shading right on her skin (and I still need to work on her hands), but it's all good. It's meant to be fun & I did it for Sunny. Those are her fairies that I have added to the painting. Please be kind. You have no idea how long I sit and hesitate sometimes before I hit "post." 

  S says she likes it :)


  1. You are very modest ;) Look in her eyes tells everything, and makes me happy too! This is such an amazing piece, so special and personal for both of you!!! You are GREAT mother...

    1. It touches my heart how kind you are Siga! Thank you.

      I'd like to do more pieces in the future where S and I can collaborate. The way a child draws always adds an element of whimsy. :)

      My one wish is for her to always be able to look back and see how much her presence in my life has meant to me. I want her to know that I thought about her as I painted or carried out our days doing/seeing/being and dreaming so many other things together!
