Here are some photos I took of Maria and family at her art opening event. They were like royals!
Cordelia, fashionable as always, was stunningly charming.
She and her friend, Sadie, played hide and seek and chase
through the sea of legs, munching on cookies along the way.
...smiling and greeting people the entire evening, often with Elise on her hip.
That was so appropriate, given that she did much of the painting while actively mothering.
Eric, an artist himself, was enjoying seeing his beautiful wife shine that night.
Elise spent her night moving through a sea of legs, looking for
those attached to someone familiar.
Grandpa was happy to give her a higher perspective.
I had to show you a close up of the hat!
Is that a happy artist or what?!
