Belated Happy Birthday!


Alex: 10 years old!

You are by far our greatest creation! More so than any painting I could paint, any clay I could mold, any bead work I could loose my eyesight working with, more than anything else I could get my hands on to create with.

Happy tenth anniversary on mother earth!

Xochitl




This one took a long time, longer than I expected and intended but I love the end results. I don't often paint with that much blue but it happens to be my favorite color so it was a real treat! The embroidery was tedious and fun and reminded me of my grandma sitting at the table with white cloth and turning it into beautiful flowers with her magic needle. I think I'll call this one Xochitl, the Nahuatl name for Queen of the Flowers, or Field of Flowers.
