Girl in a Beaded Hat

Tonight I want to feature a drawing I did of my daughter, called Girl in a Beaded Hat. She is sick with an ear infection, and is vastly flattered to be featured in Mom's new blog. You can post get well wishes at the end of this post. Anyway, this is one of those drawings that took weeks to accomplish.[I will never draw her in that hat again.] Of course, it isn't an oil painting, but remember that graphite never cracks or fades. And rust never sleeps.

oh, ear infections are the worst :( on the bright side, they usually clear up quite quickly, and motrin is your friend during that time :)

I hope your daughter feels better soon! Ear infections suck, but at least you know that every day it will get a little better until it's finally gone.
The portrait you drew is just too good for words, wow!

What a lucky little girl she is to have such an amazingly talented mom. And an unlucky girl to have an ear infection.

Give her extra hugs from me.

Stupendous work

Thanks so much everyone! My daughter has gotten a big lift from all the well wishes.
