9/6/10 5:07 PM Bye Bye, Baby Buddy
I have this funny memory of carrying Victor on my back while giving a tour at the U of O Art Museum. He was about a year and a half old and he and this baby were inseparable. I even made the baby an outfit to match one I’d made Victor. Yes, I was and continue to be That Kind Of Mom. Unfortunately, Baby’s head fell off in the Chinese Gallery while I was expounding upon the Twelve Immortals to the sixth graders. Panic ensued, but everybody helped distract him until I could restore the head to its rightful place.
Miraculously, Baby survives to this day and was discovered in the shed just in time to head off to Brooklyn with Victor.
He was kind enough to pose on the easel for this portrait before leaving town.
