A portrait of my daughter, Perrin (15).

We had some fun doing this, we were going for a kind of classical Grace-Kellyish look, not sure if we got there but I do think Perrin is lovely.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    When I saw the thumb nail I thought “Grace Kelly” before i had read your words! Such a beautiful young lady captured so perfectly by her talented mother. A wonderful portrait Micklyn, we are so lucky to have such beautiful models for daughters! :))

  • Indeed, a daughter is a wonderful thing! thanks so much Karen!!

    shes beautiful! the title made me think of the avril lavigne song titled the same. :)

  • You know, I’d never listened to that song, but I listened to it just now on youtube and I think it is fitting enough : ) She is already extraordinary though! In more ways than I can say. thanks so much, jujubean!
