Trying To Keep It Clean Here People!

My 13 year old daughter Lily was given the natural gift of being a talented artist.  She is incredible with her pencil and pen drawings, specializing in Anime styles.  Since she was 10 her talent has really shown and I've offered to sign her up for art classes that I thought would help her talent grow only to be met with the response "No thanks Mom.  Why should I take a class where someone will be trying to change how I draw?  I know what I'm doing."  Um. Well, point taken.

This year our public school's were able to have Art Class and she was actually excited about this, which was a surprise.  (What happened to the "No one's gonna teach me how to draw!" mentality?).  She brought out her Art Class sketch book during dinner last night and I felt completely immature for what my eyes were seeing and how hard I was stifling my laugh.  Yes, I may be a mid-Forties momma but, my spirit tends to lean toward that of a 12 year old boy.   Here's her handmade cover:




Yes, those are arrows.  Yes, I know.  However, well, they look like something else to me.

Anyhoo...

She was so excited to show us that she's learning Perspective and Vanishing Points in the world of drawing:



I am so happy for her that she's now understanding that it's a good thing to learn more about what you love to do.  This could only lead to good things.  (And hopefully, for her mother, sharper arrows.)
