This was purely accidental....Tippi jumped up on the couch a split second before the 10 second self timer went off on the camera and I just as quickly turned the art book around so that it would be facing in her direction. I bought the used book at a library book sale awhile back entitled "The Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer" which was about 17th century artists that I enjoy mostly because the paintings of that era looked very much like photographs with incredible detail, shadow and light.. I asked Tippi which one do you like?...Her eyes looked at the portrait on the left page that Rembrandt had painted in 1634 entitled "Saskia as Flora." which was supposed to be of Rembrandt's wife... The portrait on the right page was also of Rembrandt's wife entitled "A Young Woman in Fancy dress" about 1635...The page being glossy unfortunately got some glare in it .. Tippi's serious expression and the way she is sitting is priceless:-)

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Thank you all.....I smile every time I look at this...I didn't know that Tippi could get such a
    serious look on her face.She is so smart ...We talk to her like she is a person and I think she
    understands a lot more than we give her credit for...She is precious!

    Thank you all the kind words....I think sometimes what turns out the best is what is not planned
    but what just happens and Tippi really brought life to this picture!
