Something for mom...

Here's a little sketch for a painting I'm making for me mum.
Yes... there's a meaning to it. Otherwise, it'd be pretty odd for me to give
a painting of some kid sitting on a rhino.
Yeeeears ago... back when I was in fourth grade, my mom and a teacher/parent conference. I didn't find out until a few months later what they'd talked about. But, apparently, my teacher, Mr Orbech was telling mom that he wanted to place me into one of those school for the gifted. In his hands, he was showing mom something I wished I could find again. It was a spiral bounded notebook that drawings after drawings from my Empire Strikes Back movie picture book. I guess you could say that this was the next step towards my destiny as an ar-teest.
Unfortunately, my grades in math wasn't up to par for this particular school.
Anyhoo, during the time I was sitting at my desk while they were chatting, I was crafting together a paper rhino.
If anything, this painting, a memory...

Just coming through a case of the sneezies. Good times. After the last couple of days, I wouldn't be surprised if the stock prices of Kleenex skyrocketed after my investment in boxes of their product. Lost a lot of painting time since I've been rendered almost useless. So, now it's time to get back in biz...
Thought I'd do a quick sketch before crawling back into hibernation...
