This is one of my girls favorite paintings for my show. This was inspired by Aleah who gathers up all of her favorite stuffed animals every night at bedtime. The current tally is 8. She has slept with the same little stuffed bunny for over 7 years. As a parent it is just the cutest thing to see this side of her. Only remnants remain of the "little girl" in her. This painting is my way of recording this part of her. This little girl has brown eyes and blonde hair just like Aleah.
