What a perfect caption, "two peas in a pod". You should do a sketch of exactly that, using this picture as your inspiration.

I have been jealous of your artistic skills for a long time now; I cannot draw to save my life! If not for Photoshop, my creative urges would go largely unsatisfied.

Yes, the illustrations on Rosy Gets Cozy are watercolors created in Photoshop (my own "recipe") from photographs... some hers, some mine, and some are actually composites of 2 or more pictures. It is an infinitely fun and satisfying challenge for me!

Jennie, that's a thought...it would make a really sweet drawing...poor Jimmy...we we both hit pretty quickly w/ 'sleep deprivation' when we brought Edward home...and finally, after about 2 months...Edward actually started to sleep!!

I just love what you are doing on Rosy Gets Cozy...I don't know how to use Photoshop (REALLY..I should take a course...)..I'm glad to know how satisfied you are, infinitely satisfied w/ the program...Edward had been using Photoshop since he was 14...he took some classes @ Rhode Island School of Design...so, maybe, it IS my turn..don't be jealous of my artistic skills...it's a gift Jennie and you have PLENTY of your own...:)))))

Solomonsdelle...I couldn't agree more!!

Thank you Dorothy...they still are very much '2 peas in a pod...'!!!

Thank you Liza..he did have an excellent Father's Day..))
