the greatest jewel by travisJhanson the greatest jewel by travisJhanson
the greatest jewel

To me the greatest jewel is not gold, silver, nor fame, but the soft bundle of joy that sits on your lap, smiles and even cries a little. Happy is the warrior, who's treasury is full of them.

Aww! You made me lower lip go all quivery!

I wonder if you'd consider selling digital stamp rights for some of your images?
This would make such a darling Mother's Day card! :D

Another source of income for you .... card makers and scrapbook artists!!
I'd buy a whole bunch of them!

I just went baaaaawwwwww the first time I saw this.
Maybe it's the fact that he's so rough & burly and how he has an itty-bitty little one that tugs my heartstrings, but there's something so heartwarming about this 'fatherly love' picture (especially the care in his eyes) ^v^

awwwwww. I find big guys being so tender with tiny offspring incredibly charming. The rougher and burlier looking the guy the better. So he isn't a pirate then only a grizzled ol' warrior heh

You really have a wonderful, distinctive style that manages to be old-fashioned and very modern simultaneously.
