This is a story about love repeating ....


Once Upon a Time ...
a beautiful turquoise bow wanted to see the world ...


so "First" was born.

Though eager to begin her journey, "First" simply didn't feel complete on her own.....


and decided she needed a tiny baby brother

(Sold 4x4)

Who was named "Second."

"Second" turned out to be much bolder and more dramatic than his delicate older sister "First," in spite his small size.

It was thought his boldness might have developed as a result of being re-created second from "First!"

Desperate and excited to test this theory again, "First" and "Second" pleaded for another sibling... 


and to everyone's delight, a new even spunkier girl named "Third" joined the family!


Overcome with joy for their new sister, the siblings celebrated!


Now you might think our happy family would end the story here, but such is not the case.  

"First" and "Second" knew right away that their flirtatious sister "Third" had bigger things in her future.  So the two convinced the new baby girl to strike out on her own and discover just how far she could stretch her boundaries.

(available soon 48"x48")

And the story of "Fourth" begins!

To Be Continued ...

Terrific idea! As with many good stories, I was tempted to jump ahead, but restrained myself and enjoyed each of the paintings as you laid them out.
