Painting #16
5" x 7"
Oil on Canvas Board

Sean's going to be 13 in a couple months. It's been amazing watching him grow and develop into a young man. It's also been interesting watching his tastes develop over time. From Barney and the Wiggles to Stevie Wonder and Steely Dan, he's not the little boy he was. Toys and posters and things that cover his shelves have come and gone as well. I'm glad the robot has stayed, though. It arrived when he got his first big boy bed, which was space-themed, and has made the cut ever since. You know, this probably explains why I started crying during the opening credits of Toy Story 3, and was still sniffling as we walked to the car in the parking lot. Toys come and go. But it's nice to have little things like the robot to remind me of when he was very small.
