Lovely Little Things

I am so proud of my oldest daughter.  She is trying to make money for a car, so she started a photography business called Lovely Little Things.  She's 16 and desperately wants to be able to drive herself around.

She is actually really good at photography.  It's what she wants to go to college for.  Normally, she forces her sister to be her model.  She keeps telling her that when she hits it big in New York, she'll make it up to her!

Knowing Addison, she'll hold Avery to it!

I'm so excited to see her find her passion in life at such a young age.  I know she will go far!

Damn it!!!

Last night I decided to work on a face using only graphite.  I thought it was turning out pretty good and then I held it up.  I was like....damn it!  I think the nose is too far down.

It's actually not that big of a deal. I can just graphite the back of the original and then transfer the picture and move the nose up.  But it's just frustrating when you work and work and then realize that you screwed up!

  So in my frustration, I turned to my art journal and just played.  By the end, I felt much better.  I love art journaling.  It is so freeing!  No pressure to "get it right" because it's just a journal!

 It's not finished, by the way.

If you have any suggestions for the face, I would be grateful for your help!

I still have soooooo much to learn!
