Yet More Hands
I need to get my drawing to be stronger. I can draw many things right now, but I can't draw to specifics, and I can't get it to look as beautiful as I think it should. Hopefully, my lack of natural ability won't totally hurt me, I'll just need to work hard at developing my eye, etc. My friend Sarah, who also has a blog, is really gifted. She can't even really talk about art in so many words, she just has "it." She'd turn around something that she was looking at for me to see and go, "Isn't that awesome!?" And I'd be all like, "What? That?" And she'd be like, "Yeah!" I didn't really understand why, but now I get it: she actually has it in her to recognize and admire visual beauty, just naturally. I don't know that she's ever taken art lessons or anything. She's just like that. I admire that a lot about her. Way to go, Sarah! I'll have to work hard to catch up to her.
