I've been waiting for this!!

Hey all, I have something REALLY cool to share with you today! I've been asking my oldest daughter to draw up a sketch of herself (forEVER) and this weekend she surprised me with the finished drawing!! YAYYYYYY...I'm so excited!!

I posted some of her other artwork on my blog in the past...HERE is a sketch she did of her little sister, HERE is a drawing that was featured in an art show during her senior year (also of her little sister's feet and hands), and you're all familiar with that cute peanut bee character that's up in my blog banner....she did that too.

Here she is along with her self portrait. I think she did a FANTASTIC job!



Love ya, E!!

Impressive! So much talent, so young!

Joan said...

What a beautiful and talented girl. I'm sure you are very proud. Do you have a place picked out to hang it?

Betty aka ZacksNana said...

Yes she is very talented, but I think she gets some of her talents from her mom....

Kathy Kelsheimer said...

Denise, Very nice! I have to tell you that my grandmother also drew pictures of herself, and they are our families' most prized possessions! Please keep every sketch...and someday your daughter's grandchildren may be writing the same thing!

Gabriela (Gabi With An Eye) said...

Denise - not only is E a talented artist, but she's drop dead gorgeous too! Congratulations, Mom!

Dawn said...

Wow you aren't kidding. I think she needs to design her own stamp line. I love this. I think a self portrait has got to be very difficult. Super job.

stampmiser said...

That is totally worth framing! Would make a wonderful photo for the wall just like you posted here with her holding her portrait! Great talent she has!!

Michelle said...

Wow, that is amazing!! I've always been jealous of people with artistic talent. My best friend is HS *always* was chosen to design the yearbook cover. Anyway, she's beautiful & looks just like you!!

Karen Motz said...

Wow Denise, her sketches are amazing!

Michelle (Lady2cu) said...

Oh Denise, how very proud you must be! Her sketch is fabulous, and most definitely worthy of framing! And what a gorgeous girl she is! Can you bottle some of that talent and send it my way? LOL!

From someone who took art class in high school and realized at that point that I wouldn't be able to make a living from it... I truly appreciate the talent that your daughter has! Nurture it... keep it growing! Congratulations to both of you. You have every right to be proud. What a great portrait and some serious capability! You go Girl(s) :->
