I've decided to do anything that take myself out of my comfort zone this year. Well, theres a drawing exhibition coming up, well the submissions are due in November. I've decided to draw and draw, and then draw a bit more, and hopefully, one of the things that I draw, will be rough copy for " that special piece".
This is my cute little granddaughter Lucy, going off to camp for the first time. Also a quick sketch of her on a toboggan.

Handed this portrait to my neighbour today. . I was minding her kids one day, and got a photo of Tara on my phone. She had this impish little smile and luckily, I captured it. Tara has cerebal palsy and has no muscle control,she isnt able to sit or eat or speak. and I noticed that they dont have many "smiling photos" of her as they do with the boys. Which is such a shame as she is the prettiest little girl. I just see past the disablement and know when I blow a blurty on her arm and she laughs, that she is just alittle girl and hopefully, my painting will show others to see her as I do.
