Kings on rollerblades, Kats and Birds on skates...


There is a poem that I really love that goes something like that "Kings on kingly rollerblades, Cats and Rabbits up on skates"..and it goes and goes and talks about a painting that is ment to be a Birthday present for a girl who turns 5. And some lady offers to buy that painting, but the painting can not be baught--beacause it has friends that are going to the birthday party. And friends can not be sold.

My boy is turning 5 today. And I wanted to paint something very special for him. All the characters from this poem dancing on paper would make a lovely painting.

My little boy. My big boy. My serious, smart, playful, delicate , excited, tired, happy, jumping on the bed, jumping in the puddles, throwing snow, refusing to try new food, drawing wonderful abstract pictures, always playing war, the youngest one in the class, loving history more than I could ever imagine, knight, loving to sit in my lap, still waking up at night, afraid of monsters under the bed, not afraid of spiders and goblins, driving me crazy , making me super proud.

I stayed up drawing till 12 am last night , but I did not finish the drawing. Being sick does not help in the matter. But I've got some sketches. I think I will finish it within next week. A cat on skies is going to be part of it:)
