When my eldest son was in fifth grade, he went camping with his class from McDonogh #16 in New Orleans, and he brought home a plaster raccoon footprint that he had made. It's a very well-made impression, and thanks to the little piece of wire embedded at the top, it has hung in all of our many kitchens since 1977. Tomorrow is Mike's birthday, so I painted his raccoon print for him to thank him for it and let him know that I think of him every day when I see that funky little print. At the top right is a second generation animal print-- a bobcat print that Mike's son Tallis made a couple of years ago when he was a cub scout.
Across the bottom some quick drawings of the tangerines that L brought over tonight for our studio work period.
