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.


  1. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
