Oh nooooo, mom. You bought her markers and a drawing pad? That is weeeeeak.
I say, hush children! You don't know what you're talking about. Everyone loves art supplies!
I had already thought of painting Selah's portrait, but I had no intention of doing it myself. I wanted one of the chil'rens to do it, to give it that abstract, kid's art style. And I knew just which kid to sit down and do it.
I didn't have to ask twice. I pulled up some pics of Selah for inspiration, mixed some flesh tone and set up his other paints and told him to get sketching.
It turned out really adorable. I had to help with Selah's eyes and dimples, her two most distinguishable features, to some pattern on the background, but the rest was all him. She loved it, and so did her mama!
The artist hard at work. I thought it was really cute that he drew the bow in her hair. If you know Selah, then you know she quite a collection of hair bows.
