Sisters and Hairdoing

Anna turned five just before her sister Maura was born. This fall they’ll be five and ten. Or should I say, ten and five?

The eldest and the youngest with two boys in between.

Sunday morning I looked down the driveway after Laura and James had just pulled out with Laura’s new car (they’d driven over to show us)

I saw Anna fixing Maura’s hair as they stood the end of the driveway. Very intent.

Maura doesn’t really enjoy getting her hair braided or brushed but her hair is long and they swim a lot so it’s necessary.  She’ll let Anna do it and Anna has a nice way about it- getting her to cooperate…

convincing Maura it’s a good thing to brush out the tangly knots!

Both girls pretty much ignored me and my camera, the concentration to get it right on the hair made them forget about me, so I took some shots and approached them slowly.   You can see when they became “camera aware”.

I like it when they ignore me.

Here’s the link to Francine Russo’s interesting article The Science of Siblings that my sister and I read last week.  Sibling relationships and their importance in your life.  Some note about only children as well.

These are taken Canon 50mm 1.2 L series lens so no zooming possibility. Have to move myself.  Good practice.

People at Work: Body Artist

This is not your ordinary face painting!

Last week one of my student’s moms came in to create a special gift for the Communications student teacher as a farewell present on her last day of student teaching.  The timing of it fell on Friday afternoon when they were scheduled for Art class and they asked if it would be okay and I agreed it would be fun to see an artist at work. ( I think she is going to return for Career Day, too)

Michele Johnson is the owner of 7 Heirs Body Art Co/ 7 Heirs Media and was telling us about how she was doing body art  painting during the Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears concerts, drawing a crowd as concertgoers looked on at her work.  It is true, she is quick and creative and the design appears rapidly and beautifully and the addition of jewels tops it off. The students gave a nice round of applause and it took no time at all!

Have an event and need some pizazz, call Michelle 412. 586.5006 or email her –     kristal_klere(at)yahoo(dot)com
