You know how some kids can get all sorts of bumps and bruises and never care a bit? My son is not one of those. He worries about the slightest bump crying, “Mom, I have a bleeding cut!” at the slightest scratch. He happily worries over each of his injuries, checking beneath the band aid to make sure it is all right. You can imagine what happens when he falls from his bike.
Not thrilled with this portrait–not exactly what I was going for but I have done worse. This was done without the benefit of pictures to work from since the kids are away today. I did it on my new watercolor block–8″ x 11″–very different from the sizes I usually work with. Not sure I call it finished but we shall see if I mess with it anymore.
