Frolicking Fairy

Trinity finished painting this last night for her great-Granny B (my grandma) for Christmas.

Not too shabby for a 13 year old!  We're still debating the title of the painting.  I said "Frolicking Fairy" (can you tell I'm a sucker for alliteration?), Trin said "Fairy" (try not to be overwhelmed by her cleverness), and Clint said "This Fairy Blows".  Um, bubbles.  Since all of our ideas suck (or blow), any suggestions you might have are welcomed.

Oh, I finished my peacock painting, which I'm giving to Teri now because she really wants it and I don't really have any connection with it.  It came out pretty, but the peacock is just standing there, posed on the canvas, when I'd like to have something with a little more energy or motion displayed in my home (like the one illustrated above).  I'll post a picture of it on my other blog later once I've recovered from the holidays.

Speaking of, I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas tomorrow!  Sorry for this very un-Christmasy post.


  1. That looks awesome! Your 13 year old is a much better painter than me. I can't even do paint by numbers. I like that the bubbles look, well, like bubbles. That takes a certain amount of talent. I like "Frolicking Fairy" too, but I'm also a sucker for alleteration.

    Merry Christmas to both of you (Jodi & Shannon) and your families!

    1. Thank you Kristyn! Merry Christmas! :)

    2. Haha--I remember you telling me about your painting by numbers non-gift It's okay, you my friend are a very talented woman, just in areas that don't involve paint. ;) Merry Christmas Kristyn!

  2. OMGsh, that is so awesome! Trin has got her Mom's talent!

  3. Thanks Shan! I mean, she's a little rough around the edges, but for never having taken art lessons, I think she's got a ton of potential.

  4. I'd go with Frolicking Fairy too!

    Merry Christmas to you and Shannon and your awesomely talented family! xo
