Snug as a Bug

"Snug as a Bug", 9x12", oil on Gessobord

"Babies smile in their sleep because they’re listening to the whispering of angels."  — Author unknown

Snug among blankets, pillows and an array of furry friends, this is my youngest grandson whom I captured in a photo napping one bright summer afternoon in my studio. 

Getting him down for a nap, I had planned to paint that afternoon. However, there's something about a sleeping child, like a magnet that makes it impossible not to wallow away hours watching diminutive breaths under yielding eyes abducted to foreign lands by sugar plum fairies. Obviously, I didn't get much painting accomplished, however the time was well spent in grateful awe and wonder. 

Being a grandma is the best of times, all the fun without the stress. 
Plans and agendas fall to the side, you have to grab time with grandbabies...they don't keep. 

Lullaby and good night,
