Bubba’s Portrait

     Bubba has been increasingly obsessed with finding the little person he first saw in a garden in Paris who he refers to as “The Girl”. While we were preparing for another trip, Bubba just roamed around looking for the girl. Bubba came up with an idea and I’ll let him explain it to you.


     I had to do something to find “The Girl”. I think she is out there somewhere. I even feel she must be looking for me. I suddenly got a flash of inspiration. During my travels, I saw how people get their faces out there so they could become well known. We saw this guy in Nice, France. He had his picture painted and became Emperor of France.

     This guy in Florence, Italy, stuck himself up on a horse in the square and before you knew it, he owned the place.

     I decided to find the best artist in the world to paint my portrait.  I searched high and low and interviewed dozens of candidates.  Then I found the greatest painter that exists today . . . Millie.

     I sat in the chair and she started right away painting my portrait.

     She wouldn’t let me look at the painting but she had a look of total concentration.

     She sketched out the basics.

     Then she picked me up so she could fill in the details.

     When she showed me the finished portrait, I fell over in my chair I was so impressed.

     The portrait now sits for all to see.

     When I told her why I was getting the painting done, she grew interested and asked me to describe “The Girl”.  She is about one and three quarters of an inch tall, brown hair, black eyes, and smooth yellow skin.  Her measurements are 2-1/2, 2-5/8, 2-5/8.  Millie said she sounded familiar and that she remembered “The Girl” because her name was Millie too.

     Is The Girl’s name really Millie?

        Millie Velasco is truly a talented artist.  We asked her to pretend to draw Bubba’s picture and she jumped right into the spirit of things, completing the portrait.

        She has produced some very impressive works, some of them using wine as a pigment.  Her work can be seen at SmugMugz.com
