11″x14″ acrylic, 2010. Freckles, a fine example of the genius amalgam of stuffed toy and security blanket, belongs to 2-yr-old Nadia. Her mother Jessica bought it for Nadia when she was too tiny to appreciate him, but she now turns to Freckles when sad, scared, or sleepy. Jessica says that when Nadia started daycare, Freckles made the transition easier (for both of them) with his presence as a familiar friend.
