This is for my Daughter

Boo spent 7 years of her young life dedicated to percussion. She was a drummer. The coolest of the cool in the high school band. She could play everything you could hit with a stick and play it well. She loved it so much, she enrolled in the music program in college with the thought of becoming a music teacher.
1.5 years in, she changed her mind, and switched to graphic arts.  Dad was not pleased.
Boo went at it cold, not having a lot of art classes under her belt from her high school years. To make the cut and progress to your Junior year in the program, you have to go up for something called "Junior Block". Don't ask, I don't know. Boo went for it two times and didn't make the cut. This year, the third attempt she made it. She worked so hard at it she made herself sick. She wanted it bad.
I'm very  proud of that woman child.
She produced this to make the cut.

  1. Congratulations to the young lady. Sticking to something that you care for is probably the important lesson from life.

  2. AWESOME!!! I can't draw a straight line with a ruler. Talent will out.

  3. That's great! Doing what she loves and worked so hard to achieve, work will never be 'work' for her. Congratulations to the daughter!

  4. Congratulations to her and you! You obviously instill a work ethic that will last a lifetime.
