Singing Artist


Vivi drew this portrait of Picasso, the injured black-capped chickadee. I like how he looks like he is wearing a beret. My Vivi spends a great deal of time drawing. Rarely is it about the finished product, but mostly about the process. She sings the entire time. In fact, Vivi sings all the time. No matter what she is playing, or if she is riding on the sticked-together bike, she is singing. It is a window into how she is feeling, what she is thinking and how she is processing all the input she receives. I would love to take her to the opera. I wonder what she would think of that? Hmmmm....

I love the portrait!
Yes, I shall be checking in on your blog, both for the bird and to soothe my homesick soul... Thanks for your comments on my blog, and I may meet you when we move back (Seward is on the possible list of destinations!)

Love the hat! (cap, I should say...)

Vivi might love the opera and understand it well!

What a cute picture by Vivi. This reminds me of when my brother (the artist) was a little boy and he used to sing while he drew. One of his teachers at school (in 1st grade, I think) indicated on his report card that there was a problem with him "bursting into song during busy time." We still laugh about that....it's hard to silence the artistic soul!

Hi Trixie,
It's me again and I forgot to say previously that I like your new profile picture!

Hi Ruthie!

It was fun to pick and choose my picture. I think I dropped about 30 lbs (wink, wink). I did forget a background. Oh well! Thanks for showing me that sight.

Ahhh...state fairs. The grease, the smell, the nausea. I love it.

I almost choked on your Mother of the Year moment. We share that award, I think.

Re: your last post. I remember watching a video you posted of Vivi singing a Christmas song. I loved her voice. Take her to the opera, and she might just join in. Her tremolo made me smile.
Have I said before that your kids are really CUTE????

Hi Trixie,
I did the same thing with my little picture when I made the whole body, it was like, oh yeah, that's what I used to look like back in the 70's when I still had a waistline (a LOL moment)
