Things I Love Thursdays

I love finding snippets of happy times from my childhood.

I drew this when I was 7.  I drew these a LOT.

I love finding reaffirmations that I am on the right path.

me again, grade three

I love that today, I'm still creating.  
I'm still getting those 'report cards' every time comments are made on my work.  
And yes, I still go show my mom the marks I'm getting.  : )  
And yes, she's still proud of me.

big Monika, still coloring.

: )

If only that 3rd grade Art teacher could see you now ;)! You're rockin' the coloring these days, stay blessed!

I'm amazed at the work you did when you were seven!! Holy cow? So confident and beautiful. Glad you stayed in the business you're in!!

Margaret said...

You drew that when you were seven?! Amazing ability to *see* and interpret!

I can see why you are still an artist today. That drawing from when you were 7...incredible. And your mom should be proud of you.

Oh geeze! I'm blushing. I didn't think that drawing was particularly impressive for a 7 yr old? (...but thanks) I posted it only because the subject matter made me giggle. Elevators, trains, gophers and sunsets... that's all there was to draw when I was a kid. And it's funny to think I'm still drawing them today. Pretty neat to come full circle.
