May 2012 – I’m Listening

This weekend I completed a charcoal portrait of a 6 month old baby. The facial expression on her face is priceless. She seems so attentive and focused on what’s before her.

It always amazes me how fast babies learn considering what they know when they arrive. Hey they catch on quickly and within a year or two they’re able to focus on every word you say and every action… which as mother’s know can be both entertaining and embarassing!
