My daughter's sketchbook
July 7, 2016 3:11am CST
She's working hard to be a published author and she writes impressively. She's hoping to catch on with one of the bigger publishing houses, which is hard to do. My publisher is interested but she is holding out from talking to them. I don't doubt her at all. She started drawing without ever telling me and tends to be pretty quiet about it. What amazes me about her work is that she draws from her mind. She can do this without looking at a model or a picture. Neither my wife or myself can really do that. Remains to be seen how far she will pursue this obvious talent. She could at the very least do her own amazing book covers. My wife and I just say wow!

Tell me I am wrong please. Artists are quiet. They are recluse about their work. Though they consider what others might say about their art, they don't want it to be part of their art. They only need some solitude. A place. Some material. And the inspiration to be with their work, alone.

@Bluedoll You can see personality in her work. I think that is easier to see in art done from memory. My pseudo-adopted daughter at work has artistic ability as well. It has clear dark themes which bothers some people. It should, but not because the little lady is evil. It's a reflection of the hell she's been through in her young life. I've advised her to allow herself to express that because it is potentially therpeutic for her.

Perfect!She has plenty of imagination to draw without looking at a model or a picture. Did she get any drawing class before? If not, she can take a class for advanced study. Talent and training will take her further. I like drawing and can draw well too. However, i give up drawing as my career for some reason. Nomatter whether your daughter make drawing as a career or hobby,hope she can realize her value in her job.
