I just realized that I could do a post with pictures that were already on my computer before it started acting wonky and since I’ve been wanting to do a post about my daughter, aka, my#1 girl, for awhile, I thought now would be a good time. Here she is.
I love this picture. It was taken a few months ago after she got a cute hair cut. Since then she has cut her bangs, so now she has a funky retro hair style.
The other night we were hanging out and I asked her if she thought of herself as an artist. She said, not really, which surprised me as she totally is. I don’t know where she gets it from, but she has been drawing amazing things since preschool and has recently been doing quite a bit of painting.
This is one she did last trimester in her art class. It was supposed to be a memory or a dream. The house in the painting is my dear friend, Joy’s house. Ellie would go with me on visits to Joy occasionally and would love to walk through the cemetery nearby, on her way to Dairy Queen to buy a banana milkshake.
Never in a million years could I ever paint anything remotely resembling this.
This trimester she is taking Photography 2 and she is really enjoying it. She had an assignment to find a photograph she liked and try to recreate it. This is the photograph she chose.
So she enlisted the help of one of her girlfriends, and came up with this.
Thanks for letting me get my brag on about my #1 girl. I’ll be leaving on my trip tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to it. It has been raining here all week and looks like more rain is in the forecast here for the weekend. Not so in sunny CA. Yeah!
