beautiful gift

like a good middle-class, inner-suburbs, artsy-fartsy baby, fruiby has already started his art collection.

we went to an auction recently to buy a print that our friend leonie had made and that we had fallen in love with. when she sent it out to us, there was another print tucked in with the one we had purchased:

'down, down, down! would the fall never come to an end?' by leonie connellan

i love the way that leonie's work incorporates text, and references all the best stories. 

'down, down, down! would the fall never come to an end?' (detail) by leonie connellan

we will definitely be reading lewis carroll's stories to fruiby, and now he has artwork to go with it. luckiest child ever.
