How did she learn to draw like this?

Ree was quite busy doing something at the kitchen table. She quietly worked away, then nonchalantly handed me this drawing.




I asked if it was a self portrait, by the way, and she said said “it’s not me, and it’s not Ro, it’s just someone who looks like us.”

PS: Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I had a lovely morning. TubaDad says Ree woke him up early saying “Let’s go, we’ve got stuff to do!” They started the festivities with a dragon show (Ree was the trainer and Ro was the dragon), gave me utterly precious handmade cards, and brought in breakfast in bed that the girls called “a chocolate feast!” (choc-dipped strawberries and mini choc donuts). We all hung out in bed for a few hours watching tv, reading, napping (me), and playing with Dusty. See? Lovely.

    She got it from her MOTHER.

    Her mother, who loves her dearly, has fostered her artistic side since she could hold a fat piece of chalk in her hands. THAT'S how she learned. that's how all children 'learn'. Parents see their inclinations and allow them, support them, give them room to explore them.

    Kudos, mom. A1 (barbara)

  2. Wow! She really has a talent! Beautiful!

  4. Wow, this is really good. You should sign her up for art classes over the summer.

    wow! :O She's really good! I second what MaLeah says. You should sign her up for art class this summer or an arts summer camp.

    Some children are natural artists. There is a blog called Double Lucky and one of the twins (adopted from China) draws fashion like someone who graduated from Pratt. No lessons, just pure natural talent. It is a lovely gift and one of many that your daughters have.

  7. Having raised a very talented artist, I can tell you... she's gifted. Truly.

  8. WOW. That's awesome. I mean, *really*. My daughter, who is very artistic, can't draw humans at all. I third MaLeah's comment--get that girl into art class to nurture that talent.

    This is amazing!!!! Shoot, i am 60 yrs. old and still do stick people,lol she is very talented !!! ( I noticed the eyebrows, soooooo good.)

  10. That is amazing! I thought I would be an artist at that age ( I loved to draw but there was no talent). I would let her take a few art classes and see if she likes them, what a gift she has.

  11. A-freaking-mazing!!! I echo what everyone else says... that's natural talent. (I am 36 and couldn't draw a face that well if I tried!!)

    Really incredible -- I would not expect teenage art students to get the proportions of the face even close to that good.
