When I was a little girl, my mom would sometimes tell me that she believed that I would someday be very big and successful. This was based on whatever talent in art she saw in me as a kid. Well, the jury is still out on that one, but indeed, art was pretty much my life for the first 20 years. Since then, I’ve barely picked up a pencil to draw with 20 years later, but I’ve watched both my girls draw for hours. Claudine in particular, has always exhibited a talent for drawing at an early age and her artwork at age 5 has become more and more fascinating. She’s been obsessively drawing these maze-like paths leading up the mountain to a hill-top house for months now and the mazes have gotten more complex. I know pretty much every parent thinks their kid is special, but I think this girl just might be going places someday.
ps. I love that she signs every drawing. Girl knows about intellectual property already.
