10x8" oil on canvas
Some people really do get better with age. Christina is one of those lucky few. She is one of the smartest and funniest young women I know (yes, Stini….young!). She has been an important part of my life for close to 23 years. Christina (and her brother, Sean) were part of the package when I married their dad a few years back. She gives me advice about raising the sixteen year old sister (still at home and pushing the limits), insight on her politics (Obama-YES; Hillary-NO) and stitches in my side from laughing so hard at her stupid opossum jokes. A family gathering without Stini is…well, pretty uneventful. On this Sunday, we will celebrate her birthday. For the 30th time! Happy Birthday, Christina!
