Make Good Decisions!

After I accidentally destroyed my new portrait this weekend, I wanted to paint something to remind myself to be more careful in the future. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Though, I don't think my portrait is curable.


The mister and I went to the movies some years ago and saw a carload full of tweens getting out of a mini van. Their mom shouted after them, "Have fun! And make good decisions!" I thought it was adorable.


I rather like this little guy, especially his dainty Peter Pan collar and precious green bow-tie. He's a bit Mother Goosey and a bit kawaii too. I hope you like him!


Have a happy week, and make good decisions!

That is definitely a precious little bow tie. And such a sad face. (I really love the images on your sidebar in the decorative frames!)

Adorable and I agree with the thought.

this is lovely, his outfit makes me think of little lord fauntelroy or oliver twist-that kind of victorian era. i love that the mom said that to her kids-hugely clever way of being there while not being there, if you know what i mean!

He's very cute...looks like he's regretting the decision that cracked his noggin.

Better luck with your next portrait.

He is adorable, but I am most impressed with his brick wall!

What an adorable fellow, and a motto worth remembering.

How sad to ruin a piece of art by accident... maybe you can try some mixed media and cover the bad part?
Your little guy here is adorable
