I tried painting Mother today. She wouldn't sit with me - I think she was inside talking to Eleanore and Abigail. It's not fair. She always seems to be spending time with those two and never with me. I didn't think that it was that far off of a request... Every proper home needs a proper portrait of the head of the household! And unless Mother has relenquished that title, then she needs to sit for her portrait!

I'm afraid that my paintbrushes are wearing a bit thin. But I don't want to have to replace them - I've never felt so inspired to paint a portrait as I am when I hold them! It's like... it's like they have a magic inside of them that I've never experienced before as an artist!

I have to get Mother to sit with me. I have to get her to spend time with me. I have to get her to pay attention to me...

My, but things have gotten away from me lately.

I told you I would sit for the portrait, and I will, dear. It's just that... Well, your sisters seemed so very ill, and I was concerned, so that distracted me...

Oh, I have been so very neglectful! Come find me, Catherine, and I will drop everything and come running for the portrait! Consider it repayment for the horrible treatment I have dealt you!

Oh Mother, what a wonderful thing to hear! We will start immediately following supper!
