My First Haircut – 18 x 24 Mosaic

My First Haircut – 18″ x 24″ Mosaic on .5″ foam core board

This is a portrait of me when I was two years old, getting my first haircut here in Fort Worth, Texas. After I transformed the picture into a mosaic, my dad and sister told me about that day and how much I hated the clippers. I felt it was appropriate to add the original pictures (see below) and how I was not at all happy about the first time experience. But in the end, I got a piece of gum. Good question to ask, is it me or did the Super Bubble gum pieces get smaller? Candy wrappers used besides Super Bubble are Snapple Peach Iced Tea, Yellow Tazo Tea wrappers, Sweet and Low packets and several shades of Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers. Be sure to Pin it to your boards and share with others.
