go big or go home

head

when I was growing up my cousin used to joke about the mini shrine (collections of their children's pictures) that his and other parents displayed in their homes.Well I know he will be proud that I am taking it to a whole 'nother level. Yes in lieu of bad elementary school pictures my kids will get 4 foot tall gouache portraits of their heads on wood panels. I may have to pay future therapy bills for the megalomania/cult of personality issues I am spawning in my progeny with this larger than life project. But honestly I think they are outrageously fun- 1 down 2 to go… and ps I love my kids!

How interesting that you painted on the wood - I hadn't realized that at my first look. Very cool Leslie.
