After almost 8 months of gracing the wall that leads to my downstairs lab, Mark has decided that Maria's art work has to go. Shortly after our last summer vacation, spent on Florida's Gulf shore, Maria came to me full of excitement and said "Momma, come see what I make.......wook, it's ocean and dolphins!" She was so thrilled with herself and to be honest, I was too. Except for the fact that her beautiful artwork was not on paper as it should have been, but on a 15 foot wall. All the way from one end to the other. Lots of waves and lots of dolphins! Of course, I gave her the "we can't write on the walls" talk but I really loved the picture she created. I decided since nobody really went downstairs except family, I would leave the creation for as long as I could. Today was the end of the line as far as Mark was concerned. He gave the basement walls a coat of fresh paint, much to my dismay. My baby's artistic expression is now hiding under a coat of antique white latex paint. Of course I had to take a picture first so I could remember it forever.
What do you think? Is she the next Monet?
I guess I should add.............there is no adoption news. Still praying, hope you continue to do the same.
