Waaaay back in January I wrote about my dad, painting my portrait.
Let’s just say that this is going to be yet another post he won’t be reading because he is finally done with it and I have a lot to say…
My dad is a fantastic artist. He really is. He just can NOT for the life of him capture me the way he can everyone else. He knows this. You can read the post highlighted above, Me and the Mona Lisa, if you would like some background information about what I have to say next.
About a week ago I popped over to my parent’s house to drop something off. I was tired. I was recovering from being sick. I wasn’t thinking straight at the time.
My dad grabs my arms and says that I HAVE to see the paintings! He is finally done. He ended up doing 2 of them.
He drags me into their bathroom. Yes, the bathroom.
There sitting over the toilet is my giant face.
And I have to say, he did a good job. He finally “got” me, sort of. I ooohed and aaahed and he was so happy.
Then he takes me to the living room and presents me with the other one.
(This is where I should have known better.)
I didn’t like it as much as the other one and I said so. Specifically, I said this:
“Do I have a half sister living in Mexico?”
My humor was NOT met with laughter.
So I backtracked and said that I was kidding and then I proceeded to gush over it.
I gushed so much that he said I could come and get it in 2 weeks. He then asked where I was going to put it.
“I will put it in a prime spot, for sure!” I gleefully remarked.
I saw his happy face, and then I got some sense and said this:
“Unless Tyler falls in love with it. He really wants a painting of me in his office at work.”
Where you will never go and see it lying under some boxes. That is what I thought and managed NOT to say.
I then asked for the other one of me, but he thinks that is no good and I can’t have that one. He is going to paint over it.
And he wants to know where Tyler’s new office is. Just in case he wants to drop in and say, “Hi.”
