backyard amazement, 1989
When I was little I designed pages and pages of paper doll outfits by laying my drawing paper over a separate drawing of a female figure, dressing her, then moving the paper and repeating with a different outfit.
My mom thought that I'd grow up to be a fashion designer.
When I was a young mom I painted my children doing their thing. Playing outside, finding bugs, diving backwards into sparkling water, wearing rubber boots.
My mom thought that I should be a children's book illustrator.
I miss you, mom.
