Here are two of my favorite Alan paintings of the first Birthday party he attended. The guest of honor was two years old. Alan jumped up an down when he saw all the toys to play with!
“Birthday Party” or “A Child’s View” is a painting done from a photograph I took at a two-year-old’s party. I have often been asked why the title is “Birthday Party” since there are no balloons, cake, etc.
The two-year-olds were involved in parallel play and I wanted to paint something that showed the viewer how that age group sees the world. Since they are usually on the floor playing by themselves their view is oftentimes hands and legs of adults hence the second title.
The Rest of the Party is a companion painting. Birthday Party or A Child’s View is the other painting of this wonderful event.
I had never heard of a Birthday party for two-year-olds before this one.
My son had such a great time there. The first painting has parallel play with-in the context of adult hands and feet. This one focuses of the interaction between the adults and toddlers.

My husband says a lot of strange things. That is putting it mildly. Anyway the other day he said he was going to make a peanut butter pie sandwich. He said that because he uses rice cakes instead of bread. I told him we didn’t have any pie to make a sandwich with.
He said he was going to make one anyway.
I said he was going to make a peanut butter sandwich pie because he is a fruit cake.
