A Strange Story...

Addie, Age 10
Artist Unknown
Pastels on Paper
Once when I was about 10 an artist asked to draw my picture while I was visiting with my grandparents.  She created the picture above but my grandmother told me that it had been splashed with water.  I thought the picture was destroyed.

Flash forward twenty years...
My Mom found the picture among my grandmother's things.  Did my grandmother think that it was too much of a boost to my ego to have a portrait of me? 
Why did she choose to hide it?

Censorship is the height of vanity.

To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.
