Wow-ee!

Riley's at the age now (almost 2) where he is beginning to relish new experiences. Things that I wouldn't think twice about fascinate him, and it's so fun to be able to look at the world through those kind of eyes! For example, climbing on a tractor and playing in a cardboard box "house" both elicited great excitement recently.

Our favorite expression of his these days is "Wow-ee!", which we hear quite frequently during these new adventures. "Oh yeah!" is a close second, and just as endearing. It's a gift to be able to see this wonder, and to be the ones who show him these new experiences.

I'm very pleased with the way these pages came out. I followed the color cues from the photos, and I love the pallette as a result. It also helps that I had such a cute subject to inspire me!

olivia has taught me so much. i have developed a sense of wonder and appreciation i never had before being a mother. there really isn't a day that goes by that i don't learn a little something new about myself and the world.
corey, i must tell you how much i cherish my visits here to your blog.
you are inspiring me to do a bit of art centered around olivia and family.
thank you!

These pages are Fabulous, Corey! The way I look at the world is with heightened color and texture and a bit of magic, which it seems to me is exactly how your art looks :)
