These drawings are from 2008. I set up a still life of two purses at the the dining room table and sketched them in pencil. After pitching a few attempts in frustration, I was working on a third when my older daughter, then 8, asked if she could sketch as well. She drew a fairly quick sketch and that was that. No stress, no fuss. Such a different experience for each of us! She simply drew. I had a vision in my head of what my drawing "should" look like! We "grown-ups" need to constantly remind ourselves to focus on the process and the outcome will be whatever it will be!
