pocket item for Ash

Hi. My name is Mary. I am eight and a half years old. I want to be famous. Today I decide to be a famous artist. My Mom lets me use her paints. I paint a picture of myself. I am looking at a picture my father took of me, and I am wearing the same green and red bathrobe over my Pajamas. But you can't see the color in the photo. My painting doesn't look exactly like me. Mom says it's called "artistic license."

A sketch for a possible new book for my granddaughter if I ever have time. The black and white photo is me at age 8. (She's eight). You can click on the image to view it a little larger.

Thanks, Steve! :-D

I was hoping to do a series of these and put them together for a book for my granddaughter, but have just been too busy!
