For some reason, in my family being tall became important. My boys are therefore lucky because they are 6'7", 6'5" and 6'4". Since my husband is 6'2", I am the "shrimp" in the family. And that's unusual because I am 5'11". If you look back at out Christmas cards often the tallest son is not the tallest one in the picture. Tip toes can be a huge advantage. In fact this year I heard from many of my friends that the boys height didn't seem right. Funny.

So after I painted this painting, all I could think of was my boys.

Leslie, Thanks to you and this challenge, I've done my first palette knife painting. Have used the knife on part of my paintings before, but never in it's entirety. Why didn't you tell us how much fun this is...or why, better yet, did I not listen to you!
