For Christmas, my brother gave Mama the most beautiful water color of his oldest son, J, and Mama when J was just a baby. I thought that the artist captured both of them so well and while my knowledge of art is very limited (I have to work at drawing stick figures), I think watercolor is a difficult medium to use and master. Well... I just had to... copy.
I'm shameless that way. They all know it and they act like they love me anyway. It turns out that Jeff's coworker is this artist's sister. I didn't take the tree down before I was stalking her by email.
Fast forward to my birthday and here they are. I am very, very happy with them!

This was one of the best "to me , love me" gifts I have ever given/gotten!
