Family Portrait
Family Portrait, by Anthony

“Mommy, Daddy, Baby Anthony, Wallet, and Car”

Anthony made this drawing at playcare. It's his first complex, well done, easily identifiable drawing, and as such, makes our heart melt in the way only a parent's can. (That's another way to say “I know you don't think it's particularly special”

The original is rather large (about 20 inches across the long side). Both Fumie and I have this picture as our computer desktop image (although because I prefer a generally dark background, I use a darkened version).

Daddy Portrait, by Anthony

On the same day, Anthony also drew a solo picture of me, showing his great attention to detail as he deftly captures the subtle nuances of my morning mood.
