Grandma Derangement Syndrome


If it ever entered my mind, while observing a grandmother gushing over her grandchild, that perhaps she was a little deranged, I would now have to recant any and all judgements on her behavior. For I myself, have gone quite goofy over my grandson. Since I live over a thousand miles away, I must content myself with a weekly visit with him over Skype. He mostly ignores me right now, but I don’t care. I get to see him play and listen to him try to talk.

Once I decided to start sending him little watercolors to see if he would make the connection that they are coming from me, I have gone just a little bit obsessive about making them. I will only be sending one every week or two, but I didn’t want to be under any pressure, so I determined to paint ahead, so to speak.

Total transparency here…. none of these are my original drawings… but they are my paintings.




I just finished this one…. I think the ink is still wet!

I know why Grandparents are so daft now.

They get to re-live their childhood.

    hehehe! I hope those go into a book for him for when he’s older.
    How sweet!

    Did I tell you my Grandmother used to make drawings for me? I still remember them!

    Adorable. I may commission you to do some artwork for my little grandson, due in late January!!

    Even if your grandson can’t fully appreciate your art now, I’m sure he’ll treasure it when he’s older. I wish my Granny had been so cool! (Actually, she was, now that I think back on the amazing memories I have of her.)

  4. I hope they get put into a book, too.
    Maybe next time you visit him you can make them into a book for him. :)
    They are all ADORABLE, btw.
