Delicatessen Eyes


Max invents a lot of phrases, and many of them are mysteries to his parents for months. This one took some sleuthing to define:

Delicatessen Eyes: The eyes of a person whose lower face is hidden.

Max came up with names for all of the James Barnett Hats paintings that we have.  He calls the Fez painting “Sabbi-Student” and the Biretta painting is “Obbi-Student”.

I told the artist about Max’s names, and he replied:

Oh, that is BEAUTIFUL. I guess the counter at the deli, to a 4 YO, is pretty high, so they only see the clerk’s eyes? That makes me happy. Thank you for sharing!
