Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! 19 weeks
Well, to make up for a very rushed sub-par painting this week, I'm including some photos of our Baby Girl. I was actually just going to post the charcoal drawing I did last night - I wasn't feeling great but wanted to do something - then today decided to try a quick painting of the same pose. Part of my problem was, I upped the stakes by painting on a piece of inkjet canvas! Don't ask me why, except that I won't feel really badly about tossing it! I actually like the charcoal sketch better, even though it has some serious problems!
Baby Girl and I play this game. Yes playing games with babies is bad, but it's far too funny. I only come up on the outside of the paddock on this corner if I have my camera, so she inevitably comes over. Then she runs away. Then she runs back. And so on. I have a very similar photo to this one of Monster as a baby, as she would come flying at me - kind of a game of human-equine chicken! I did have the benefit of a fence between me and her for this one!
Sometimes I look at her and she looks so grown up...then others, she still looks like such a baby and I feel badly for planning her upcoming weaning. I keep putting it off! Then she tries something cheeky, and weaning seems like a good idea again!
