  1. Wow.

    It's almost scary, how lifelike this is!

    I love it how here clothes look chocolaty, and that red strawberry pops out.

  2. Thanks Koosje!

    This is probably my best piece, to date. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I was so afraid I would not be able to capture that look of mischievous glee, but, in the end, I did manage it.

    She and my husband are great friends and he had called her "a monkey that belongs in a zoo" and she then said he was a "bum-bum", which in her mind is a swear word and she is not permitted to call people that, so she was giggling that she got away with it.

    I love this little girl. If I had a daughter, I would hope she was very much like Laura: sweet, mischievous-in-a-good-way, curious, bright, strong-minded, adorable, and scary intelligent.

    Thanks again for taking the time to comment and for your positive and encouraging comment. I really appreciate it.
