Thank you! I am experiencing a whole new level of love with this baby. I've also gotten into photo editing in light of all the pictures I've been taking of her. the pictures with the pink flower were edited in photobucket. So far, I'm just doing basic editing. Here is one I took on my cell phone with her eyes open that I edited in fotor.com. I entitled it "Hello there Blue Eyes".

And how can I foget Elise's first painting? I took one of my 2.5 x 2.5" mini canvases and put her foot print on it. I will probably convert it into an ornament at Christmas time.

I have also begun dabbling in sketching on black paper. It's challenging because I can't just sketch out the drawing with an erasable pencil. Once I lay down the white pencil, there's no erasing. It's been fun though and I like the effects of the white on black. Instead of focusing on filling in the shadows, I have to focus on the highlights, which is different than I am used to with sketching on white paper. I think I over did it with the white in the first attempt, but I managed to use more restraint with the second attempt.

my first son was born in Japan, when we were living there. he was the only blue eyed baby, amoungst the black haired, black eyed babies. my Japanese friends thought his blue eyes were gorgeous but I told them that all Caucasian babies are born blue eyed but the color will change to the permanent color within a month or so. my friend said that she felt sure his eyes would stay blue, so I bet her 10,000 yen (about 100$) that his eyes would change in 6 weeks. I lost the bet. His eyes are still blue, 22 years later.

As requested by Tinyliny, here are some recent pictures of Elise with her eyes open and a particularly sweet moment my mom captured on my cell phone when I was cuddling with her. Oh yeah, and a quick horse sketch just to stay on topic...lol.

This is probably my favorite picture so far and it was such a random shot taken from my cell phone right after Elise had her bath. I Edited the picture to give it that color on black and white effect and blurred the background.

Here's a recent commission I did for a fundraiser. This appy had a particularly difficult coat pattern to draw with muffled spots and roaning.
