Hi.

I'm Victoria-Riza. I'm an artist and this blog is where I document my creative journey, motherhood, and the discussions I have with my cultural psychologist husband. Read more here!

I've been obsessing over Kia Gerber not because she's beautiful (which she is), but I can't get over how much she looks like her mom! By the way, if you didn't know, her mom is super model Cindy Crawford. It makes sense that Kia would follow in her mother's cat walking footsteps, but I still can't get over how she is the spiting image of her mom. Seriously, what lucky genes! What powerful and beautiful genes!

On a creative note, I super struggled with her nose. I just couldn't get all the angles and the shadows right. I redid it so many times! That and the eyelashes. Even as I'm writing this, I'm thinking about fixing the nose yet again! I should probably just let it be because I can feel that I'm about to cross that line of over working a piece. I can sense I'm over working it, but it's difficult to ignore the urge to not perfect it. 

Ah, my vices! But I loved creating this piece and whether or not I work this piece again, I'll definitely get some good practice in as I create more portraits. 

EDIT: I did fix the nose and a added a few more details. Couldn't help it!
