My Baby Bella Ballerina.
Total honesty here, I did not get this done before midnight! For the first time.
It was a busy day around here, morning tea with the playgroup mums and bubs, the weekly shop, crawling into bed with a massive headache, you know, all the fun stuff!
With a husband who works nights, I tend to be a night owl myself, so I'm going to justify it by saying that if it gets done before I go to bed, it still counts.
Plus I was sick.
And the dog ate my first one... Ok, so that last bit is a fabrication, but the rest isn't.

This is the third time I've drawn my daughter in this little mission of mine. The 1st (just her feet and bottom), the 17th (very little portrait in the bird's thought bubble) and today.
I'm actually kind of reticent at the thought of doing a full on portrait of her.
I look at my girl, and she is so beautiful, and so perfect (in my eyes anyway). How could I possibly do her justice? Or at least not screw it up terribly...
So here she is, my tiny dancer.


  1. Um. Wow. Your drawings blow my mind but this is probably my newest fave. Following you, too! :)

  2. wow - what a clever mumma you are :)

  3. Thank you! I do quite like this one. But I am biased... :)
