I carefully colored in the shape outlines with my waterbrush. She painted in her own style, the perfect abstractness that only three-year olds can create. Her set won. I gave up my tortuously colored guests and made a crazy abstract set instead.
The title "We are home" was the first thought I had when planning this layout. A statement, but also a prayer and a promise to our family. The letters had to be woodgrain for that.
