A Husband's Self-Portrait and Sleep



My husband is an artist. He doesn't like to call himself that and he doesn't even like telling people about his hobby, by I do. I think he's really good at it. He paints in our garage into the wee hours of the night on weekends and still gets up before 8am with us to enjoy family time. He had this self-portrait hanging on the back porch to dry and I notice how he was wearing a blue shirt that day. I ran and got the camera and begged him to post it on my blog. Don't you think it really captures something?




Another evening we took our regular evening walk only to find that BOTH boys had fallen asleep on the way home. This is what parents of young children call a jackpot. It was so nice to skip the long bedtime routine for once.

VERY NICE Curt! I have seen a few of his masterpieces & am impressed. He definately has a skill & deserve the title "artist". Keep up the great paintings. Maybe sometime he can paint our family portrait for us!
Miss you guys!

Wow, kids falling asleep right before bedtime .... what a nice treat!!! Curt's painting looks just like him in a Van Gogh kind of way. Very nice. It's good he has a creative outlet. Don't forget to do the same for yourself. Mom
