Mr. Handsome the artist continues to spend a good portion of his spare time painting. Little Buddy loves watching Daddy work. When he was a newborn, we would lay him on a blanket right beside the easel so he could watch Daddy create his artwork. At four months old, we started putting him in a sit-me-up seat. Now, he only tolerates the seat for small amounts of time because he wants to be on the move, but he still enjoys watching Daddy paint, as long as Mommy is there to make sure he doesn’t get into anything in the studio.
Mr. Handsome spent hours on these two original cow paintings. One was for an art show, and the other was for a charity auction. We were both a little nervous at the auction because the first dozen items were beautifully decorated cakes, followed by a host of other random items and experiences. The cow was the very last item, and some of the guests had already left. We were relieved when several people put their paddles up to bid on it.
