these things are fun, and fun is good.

my dad is the hardest person on the planet to buy a gift for. mainly because a) he never wants anything, and tells us not to get him anything, b) he can buy whatever he needs himself, and c) he mainly likes quirky things, so it's not always easy to find something when you actually have to find something. soooo, this year, i decided to do a painting for him...i knew he'd like it, and it was personal. 

my dad and i have always loved dr. seuss, and i guess my love came from his...so it was a fun subject for my painting...but i didn't want it to be too over the top...so here it is! a quote from "the cat in the hat" (our common favorite):


i had fun playing with a new golden medium that adds a lot of volume to your paint: (notice the stripes for the cat's hat!)

  10. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
