A few weeks ago, I was presented with this portrait by an exuberant little girl. “That’s a picture of me, Momma!” Indeed, it is. It’s not only her first self-portrait, but her first “depiction” of something specific. To this point, lines and scribbles have dominated her drawing world. It’s an exciting developmental milestone for any parent, but for this Art Major Momma, it’s especially sweet.
Most of the portrait is self-explanatory, but I do want to point out that the round-ish shape that you might think is a nose is in fact a big belly. Like the kind that contains a baby.
