It makes me laugh, and what more can you ask of your art?

the back of that one...
I was chatting with a new friend, and she said her daughter loves to draw. I asked if she would teach me some things about shading and perspective. I went over Thursday for a lesson, and learned a bit about how Brianna works. She approached drawing with more planning and intent than I do. She sees shapes in each object, and enjoys drawing animals at the zoo. she has all the best art supplies, and takes a lot of time on each picture.

I acknowledged the value of that but that is not my jam. Nope. I prefer faster, looser, approach and often like to just start painting, then turn it into something. When it's a goal oriented piece like this lily from my friend Joann's blog http://teatimegardening.blogspot.com/
I decided I will likely develop a style, not truly realistic, but representational. I'll continue to learn from anyone willing to teach me.
