Speechless


An astounding portrait, I hope you agree. My daughter is advancing her skills in leaps and bounds.

Now to the expressions. I was away for a month, and I think this is the biggest change I have noticed. Alannah is increasingly able to show her thoughts and reactions with a facial expression. Here she was clambering around the rug in my living room, experiencing the collection of goodies in 'Ma's Chest'. She was particularly taken with the model cow and horse, and also with things with wheels.

Have I told you how much I love them both?

Once or twice. You're not kidding, its stunning. Why can't I do that (probably because i don't have a captive subject).

Yes you have mentioned it now and then. I love the cool denim gear she is wearing as well as the facial expression.

Lovely shot. Must applaud Kirsten's dress sense! No frilly pink dresses, yay ;-)

I know how you love them both just like I love mine. The portrait is charming.
