Young Artist at Work

My oldest daughter loves to draw. She’s loved it since before she could hold a pen steadily in her hand. And she is really good at it. She says that she wants to be an artist when she grows up. When I saw her drawing on the easel today, I had to grab my camera to try to capture the concentration on her face. I had to work very quickly to get the shot since she is going through a camera avoidance stage. That, or she makes a silly face as soon as I turn the camera toward her. Therefore I had no time to fiddle with camera settings or try to get the photo framed just right. There is so much that is technically wrong with this shot, but I think I managed to capture what I set out to capture and that is this wonderful expression of complete concentration and seriousness about what she is doing. She was drawing flamingos here, by the way.
