My daughter, A portrait of a 13 year old
I wanted to create a portrait of Libby, my daughter. She just turned 13 in April. Well as any parent of a teen knows, They have a will of their own. Libby wanted her animals with her, Karin my wife wanted her hair up, and I wanted just herself, no animals. I told Libby “ sometimes a parent just wanted their kido in the picture alone”. Well, it took three months but I won ☺
Libby’s eyes. I have always loved Libby’s eyes. Libby is trying to master “the glare”, as any 13-year-old should. I just laugh inside when I see it. And after a minute she bursts into a laugh. Classic. Someday she will stare down a wild horse with that glare of her.
