Day 75: Stacey's Birthday Portrait

"Stacey, Bermuda, 2001"  Pencil on paper, 13 x 11"

My darling daughter Stacey was born 16 years ago today, in the house in Bermuda where we were living at the time. This home birth was not planned; she came into the world in a hurry, in the presence of her dad, my mother, a squad of firefighters, and the nurse midwife who arrived by ambulance in the nick of time. She was swaddled in a beach blanket for the trip to the hospital. I did this drawing from a photo taken in Bermuda when she was about a year and a half old. Happy birthday, Stacey!
