This is Monkey, the beloved stuffed sloth given to my niece by Babesworth and I on her first birthday. Coming up on her second, he is her favorite furry companion and the theme of her b-day party is Monkey (aka sloth party).
So I decided to painted her a portrait of Monkey as part of her present (process pics above) After she unwrapped the painting she had a slow realization that the painting was Monkey, and this, is the moment she figured it out. (so much cuteness)
The next move was to have her new friends give picture monkey a kiss.
Maybe I need to paint portraits of stuffed animals for 2 year olds forever after?
