The Gift

Uploaded: April 07, 2012


My beautiful daughter and grand son with a wooden pull toy my husband cut out of wood and I painted. Our gift to him for his first birthday :) I'd like to add a texture layer to this sometime when I have more time to spare. I did a painting of this photo too. Blessed to have great models!
