happy birthday Ares

My bean is 8 today, we are celebrating with a party on the 4th so it’s going to be lots of hugs and kisses and love today and crazy town next weekend…  I love him so.. He is my favorite and my best..

things about ares at eight:

  • he loves starcraft II
  • he complains about school
  • he has no fear about being 100% his own self
  • he’s in the advanced spelling and reading group
  • he’s great at math
  • he is kind
  • he is the best dancer I’ve ever met
  • he has violet hair
  • he loves his dogs
  • his favorite books are calvin and hobbes and american chillers
  • he is not a huge eater – even of cake
  • he has a sense of humor that cracks me up
  • he loves being in his pajamas
  • he gives amazing hugs

… here are a few frames from this fall.

I love you bean happy birthday!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
