I really have enjoyed the friendliness of acrylic paints. This is of Ezri (my second daughter, now nine) at age five. Although there are alot of great things about acrylics and some artists can do wonderfully realistic works with the medium, I absolutely love the richness of oils. I will continue to practice so one day (hopefully soon) I will be able to show off some good oil paintings that I have done. Wish me luck!
This Alexia (my first daughter) at the age of five. Both of my daughters make me feel old, but Alexia will be fifteen in a few months and that makes me feel really old.
I am Hoduran. At age fifteen we celebrate the birthday with a Quiceañera as many other Hispanic peoples do. The celebration includes a ceremony where the girl is presented with her last doll, a Bible, and jewelry. Each item represents different things in her life. It is much like the Sweet Sixteenth birthday parties here. Anyways, I didn’t think I would be celebrating it for my daughter this quick. Time goes pretty fast when you are raising two daughters that keep your life pretty interesting.
