Pensive Parent

From a little photograph taken a long time ago, I did this painting for my husband, who took and loved the picture. It's of me being nervous in my mother-in-law's apartment as our 10 month old pulls himself up eye-level on a glass coffee table covered with crystal figurines. I wanted to clear them off, she wanted to "teach the baby discipline." I was very nervous. Even the potted plant looks menacing. You can see my stylish black plastic runner's watch, men's shirt and black skirt: ever the fashion plate. Why do you think he married me?
