Phenomenon

Phenomenon
That a sleeping child (teen in this painting) looks so
innocent and lovely.  When five minutes after they wake you 
feel like they are an alien.  This illustration/painting was done 
from a picture of my daughter sleeping...the phenomenon of 
innocent beauty.  About 30 minuet before I took this picture 
the epitome of teen angst and rage. LOL
I can say that she is twenty now and a beautiful 
well adjusted lovely person...going to college, holding a job,
all the things you worry will not happen as you try to guide them 
through their teens

  1. Marita, this is beautiful. Both the painting and the words. I'm thinking God led me to this tonight because my kids are driving me bonkers right now!

  5. Jack and Nicole...Yes, there is hope....It is called prayer. LOL I always say, if you don't pray before you have teens you will certainly be a prayer warrior after.
