Shining sibling - We have two kids, 2 boys and honestly I feel like the second one is a shadow of the first one. I think it takes them a little bit of time to find their feet and their own personality. I recently was telling this to someone I met and she expressed she has a boy and a girl duo. She said her and her daughter never saw eye to eye when she was young (much like myself and our second son) but she also went to express how much love and admiration she has for her daughter, she ended the conversation with how proud of her she is and how her daughter became the woman that she wished is she. How beautiful. The second of anything is always hard to be. Following something amazing is big to live up to but you just have to find you and learn how you outshine in your own way. This is how I feel about this second piece I painted in this size. I love her brightness and yet her stubleness all at once.
