If he sees someone wearing a brown shirt, he would likely say, "Look! That boy has a brown shirt. I really like it." If you ask him what color toothbrush would he like, he'll probably answer "brown". This kid LOVES brown. He especially LOVES little brown girls.
Nicholas started in the computer/gaming world quite early and somehow between Mario World and his big brother (who is a "the 3rd") he decided that his "avatar" when playing video games was Daisy 3, a little brown girl (by golly, do NOT say black girl - he WILL correct you! "She's BROWN!") We joke that someday he'll meet a brown girl named Daisy and he'll probably marry her - but it's not entirely a joke.
So, back to the inchie. When I saw Brown, I thought of Nicholas and I had to make this about him. I first came up with a plan where I was going to do a sepia photo of him with a brown leather border and do some decorating around it.. I started that, but it wasn't really coming out like I wanted, so I tossed it (not so hard when it's only an inch) and I have been wracking my brains since on how to depict my little guy and then looking at a bag of scraps that I used to make favors for the Renaissance Faire one year, I saw the wooden petal shapes and though, how about a brown daisy? And there's his little face in the center. I cheated a little as the bottom wooden petals stick out a little over the edge of the inch and I had to put this together quickly, so I could have neatened it up and cleaned up the edges of the leather better, but here is my result. My Brown Daisy 3.
