Father Time and Baby New Year
The old to the new,
The beard to the baby,
the wrinkled to the plump,
The tired to the fresh.
Father Time and Baby New Year from Frolic & Fun, 1897
What a weird, but wonderful image for the turn of the new year.
The old is always to the left, the new to the right.
I wanted to make my own version, so I used my own Baby Bear as the New year’s baby and his older self as the old year.
my quick thumbnail sketch
And finally, two older images of an infant Miss Bindergarten,
and her grown up self wishing All Y’all
a Happy, Healthy 2016!
Please share the joy, Y’all!

Lucky for me I will be waving goodbye to 2015 with a Wyeth exhibit in Denver today. Guten Rutsch to you, dear Ashley!
Ooh, lucky you, Julie! Guten Rutsch to you also!
