My daughter can draw really well
which is not surprising given that she was holding a crayon before she could talk. But she doesn’t really know she can draw. Modern schools have a way of persuading children that they cannot draw, so it’s difficult to keep a young artist’s momentum going. A young woman now, she picks up a pencil now and then. She’s on the verge (I hope) of rediscovering her talent.
Yesterday she drew the plaster cast (actually it’s made from cement, but same idea).
She has given me permission to post her drawing here. It’s a lively drawing, if a mom may say so herself …
