The intrepid artist

December 31, 2014 @ 2:36 pm | Filed under: Art


Rilla and I have been trying to work in our sketchbooks daily. I feel brave when I tackle a subject like my stapler or a piece of fruit, and then I watch her casually sit down and commence drawing something massive and complicated with utter confidence. She is dauntless. I am inspired.

  1. I’m inspired too. That’s amazing work!

  2. Here’s to intrepid daughters! May their tribe increase!

  3. That is quite inspiring. Dauntless indeed!

    I love your dedication to sketching every day. I don’t think it’s something I can commit to at that level right now, but I do want to do more drawing this year.

    • I can totally relate to that, Melanie. It’s a commitment I’ve wanted to make since forever, but I doubt it’s a coincidence that the year I finally feel able to make the resolution is the year my youngest child is about to turn six. ::sniff::
