Mixed Media Artist

Seriously Five

Mixed media painting on rag paper 5″x7″ (.25″ border).

Available HERE.

Well, I have to be honest, I have been seeing this grumpy, defiant face a lot recently. I was wondering what was up and I realized …”Her 5th birthday is just around the corner”.

I remember five.  When Imogen turned five, I mean almost literally to the date of her fifth birthday,  she became difficult and a down right disagreeable. What is up with that? Pushing the boundaries. Seeing just what she can get away with.  Turning the tables on me …Scarlett actually counted to 3 while saying that she would not be my friend anymore  if she got to 3 before I did what she wanted.  Wow.I swear, I could see the horns poking out of the top of her head as she threw all of her pillows and stuffies off of her bed in protest of going to bed the other night.


Give me patience.

I am just trying to remember how long this stage lasts.

It could be a long summer…

I know that I am always trying to make the summer last a little longer, but THIS is not exactly the way I want to make it linger.

Just another example of ‘Be careful what you wish for’. Ha, ha.

  1. Such an expressive face…the eyes speak volumes. I do remember age 5 — my boys both went through “the change”! Best of everything with your summer!!! 🙂

    • Truthfully, it is hard not to laugh right in the middle of the storm!

    Hi Maria
    It’s pay back time for Granpa.
    If you look into the left eye
    You may just see your own reflection.
    The eye of the storm reborn.
    Yes Yes Yes .
    Everything comes to he who waits.
    Love Daddy
