IF "Subtract"

Well, I have been a bit remiss at keeping my posts up to date. It's funny how real life tends to creep into my creative time. Ideally time would not be divided into real life and creative life...I'm still trying to find the balance therein.

The IF challenge for last week was "subtract". I had immediately felt inspired and excited about this challenge and had a fun illustration in mind to produce for this exercise. The medium I used was my old "tried and true" graphite pencil and eraser. My subject was taken from a photo of my oldest daughter at her Pre-Kindergarten graduation. The actual photo does not have her holding the tooth that she was missing so I added that to emphasize my interpretation of "subtract". The big gap in her beautiful smile minus two teeth, did not subtract from the joy she showed that day!

Have a creative and amazing day!
