Dad & Daughter

My husband and Maddie were sitting at the computer together and I just HAD to take their picture to create a portrait of their profiles!  My hands had been itching to get into charcoal again and this was the perfect opportunity!

I just hate it when my signature goes downhill! Grrrrrr….

P.S.  Some of you have been asking how Maddie is doing (SO sweet of you!):  she’s doing great! We will be celebrating her one year anniversary of being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on December 7th.  She is wanting to go visit at Brenner’s Children’s Hospital.  She wants to visit a child who has been diagnosed and is in Brenner’s for that reason.  She wants to make crafts with him/her (something she has fond memories of doing during her two day stay last year), and then go play in the fabulous playroom with the child.  I’m working on the particulars of being able to do this and hope it works out.  Thanks to all of you for all your encouragement this year!!

    Such a sweet Mattie–Jennifer, I have a friend who is in charge of Volunteers at Brenner if you’d like to contact her (you may have it all worked out)!
    Hugs,

    Such incredible likenesses! What a priceless treasure for you and for Maddie and her dad. I am always amazed. Maddie will be a great blessing to a lucky child at Brenner’s this Christmas. She has a well-exercised servant heart 🙂

    What a great way to spend her anniversary day! She’s quite a girl isn’t she?

    Love this portrait. I know what you mean about your signature. Ah well, the Amish and Polish peoples always put a little imperfect something into a project so as to keep from thinking they are equals with God. You can always use that as your excuse!
