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.


  1. I gotta say, your hands are AWESOME. You got the expressions very clearly in the hands, and it's super important to be able to look at an image, or part of an image, and be able to get the "feel" and emotion of it. And you're definitely getting it with your hands! KEEP MOVING FORWARD!!! Don't get discouraged! And it's completely understandable about people just having "it"... then again, it's always great to have an outsider's opinion on something and having a fresh new way of looking at something in a way you didn't think of. Anyways, sorry for the long comment, but PRESS FORWARD, SOLDIER!!! You can do it!

  2. Thanks for your encouragement! I didn't mean to sound so discouraged--I just think it's great that she has that.
    I know I can work hard and do it!
    Thanks again for looking out for me!
