A friend of mine had a baby yesterday so I made a painting for the baby. I've always thought this was a fun idea - Imagine having a painting on your wall that was made for you and dated on the day of your birth.

Plus, *in* the painting are the brushes used to paint it, and the pen used to sign it. It's like a time machine!
