5″x7″ acrylic, 2011. I love the utilitarian names that children sometimes bestow upon their most important posessions! Jennifer’s daughters refer to their favorite stuffed hippo and lamb as their “sleepy” toys, because of course their company is most essential when the girls are tucking in for the night. Jennifer ordered a portrait of each soft, floppy friend, and here is her younger daughter’s Sleepy Hippo.
