My sister noticed his red hair which is unusual so I decided to change his sobriquet to The Little Red Haired Boy from The Little Sad Boy. That makes things a lot happier.
I finished his outside frame ( a patch job at best) and that will have to do for now. He is in the old part of the house and I hope he feels good about being there--better that being rolled up and tossed in an attic.
I need to show you his mother and his sister.
I have several proposed names for sister...the Elf Child, or Salem's child, of Little Ev ( short for Evil) or "the for sale would anyone want her? Child".....
Mom looks typically primitive and too busy for a portrait sitting with farm and house work to do. Now you understand why Little Red Hair got the frame and the other two got the "maybe later."
