An Artist in the Making....

Thursday my daughter, Morgan, and I were outside on the front porch, relaxing after working in the yard. She, being 10, was a bit bored and said "what should I do now?". She had her little note paper and pens out so I suggested that she draw something.

This was her inspiration...

And this was her interpretation!!

I LOVE HER WORK!!!

Great job, Morgan! Those are beautiful and you really captured what you saw. Beautiful flowers in your garden, Eve!

That is excellent Morgan! Love the cactus in the middle and the bug!

Eve, my server is acting up again, so not able to e-mail at the mo. Will try again tonight.....

This is wonderful...what a beautiful drawing. Those are the kind that make your heart swell, aren't they, Eve? :-)

Wow, that's amazing. I think she has a ton of talent. (though what else would you expect with such a talented mom, right?)

Denise said...

Morgan has a lot of talent. Her art is beautiful. Way to go!

Hey Morgan, I think you're on to something! Keep it up! Eve, enjoy every moment with her - she's halfway out the door!

Roy Norris said...

Bravo Morgan.

Eve you really need to nurture this talent. Its special and you can see a certain style emerging there.

Eve said...

Thanks all! Morgan is delighted with her uplifting comments! She has always loved to draw little bitty works of art. My mom tells me she has some spectacular guinea drawings I have yet to see...I'm sure there will be more to post!

That drawing is wonderful - Morgan is already an artist!

Bird Girl said...

That was such a cool idea! I wish I would think of these things more often with my grandsons. Nothing neater than a child's artistic viewpoint! I would frame that if I were you! I am scanning my grandkids art work to make a book for them and their mom & dad - that way one doesn't have to KEEP all the big stuff ;-) By the way - the flower bed is perfection!

Stacey Huston said...

Great drawing. I would frame this one and hang it on my wall.. thanks Eve.

Eve

Loved Morgan's interpretation of the flower border. I'd rather l;ook at something like this piece than sopme of the tosh you see in most galleries these days!

My next post will be soon...promise....but working myself up to a job interview!
