"It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child."
Esmé's Mommy here.
On my reading "stand" (an empty medicine cabinet that belongs in our unfinished bathroom but sits by our bed) is the library book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards. I've been lamenting my lack of drawing skills every time Esmé tells me: "Draw a sheep! Draw a horse! Draw a pig!" So my husband's aunt recommended this book to me, and I have hope! I will get this brain switch thing figured out one day and come up with passable art!
At least she wasn't into tattoo art this day.
And don't ask what we did with the beetle after its modeling stint...
