Sorry, that was not meant negative in any way, i just guessed that you said somewhere in the comment replies here that it was a spontaneous shot, so don´t get that wrong, doesn´t matter anyways, I love it!
And yet another full blown (but long ago forgotten) memory comes back to me when seeing this.
I was out on my front steps and REALLY getting into whatever song I was writing when I realized that a bug had already crawled about half way up my bare leg (I was wearing shorts). I remember getting mad at the bug for breaking my focus. Still, I gently picked him/her off of my leg and placed it on a leaf in a nearby brush and said "Have a good rest of your life".
With much affection, this is for the beautiful model.
As far as Graphic Arts, I'm a former child sketch artist (I drew from the age of about 4 until I reached my early teens) with absolutely nothing saved from those days gone by.
At that point, I started creating some really wild and nearly impossible large mazes made out of people's names. Once framed and hung on a wall, they looked more like the person's name surrounded by waves than a maze. But up close, they were incredibly difficult to solve. There were literally thousands of possible routes to try and only one complete passage from start (somewhere in the first letter) to finish (somewhere in the last letter).
I guess that kinda grew old after a few years and I discovered that I could find much more inspiration trying to learn how to play the guitar. Instead of thousands of possible routes, I quickly realized that there were an almost infinite number of possibilities on a guitar's fretboard. I am now a 45 year old musician (guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion & vocals) as well as a computer tech (yet another mental challenge lol) who genuinely appreciates (and tries to positively support) the efforts of ALL types of Artists including graphics, music, photogs, dance, sculpture, acting, etc..
Plus, I just LOVE it when kids get willingly involved in an art form that excites them. Especially if it's obvious that they're doing it for themselves and not because their parents are making them do it. As a music teacher, I occasionally have to turn away parents who do that to their kids (but only after discussing it with the student first). No musical instrument can ever serve in the capacity of a babysitter. lol
It's obvious that your daughter is having a blast and I'm getting such a kick out of watching her grow as an artist. I get a huge smile whenever I see a new image with her in it, even before I get the chance to view it as more than just a thumbnail.
Please thank her for me for being the inspiration that's bringing back some of these long lost, but wonderful memories. I strongly suspect she's currently making her own and hope that in 35 years or so, someone else makes her remember and smile.
I don't know if i really like this one. The Idea is a good one but i don't like the composition of the picture. In my opinion it would have been better not to pose her in the middle of the picture, maybe a little bit more left and a little bit down....
