Portrait of the reluctant Child
I love this painting! A couple of years ago, we were at the Field Museum members' nights, and my daughter, quite a girly-girl, stepped right up to the scientists and ASKED to hold a hissing cockroach! We were so surprised that we almost forgot to take a photo. Fortunately, we did, and I painted this later to better preserve the memory. I am very sure she regretted asking after she got the bug in her hand. By the way, my daughter said that I should sell this painting cheap! She would like it out of the house.
