It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

This little guy is my favorite doodle for the week. It has been so fun to watch my daughter’s confidence growing in her ability to draw — I actually found her copying this picture from a photograph in a book and she was so proud of her finished drawing!

… And so is her mom 😀


What about you? What is your favorite find amongst your little artist’s doodles this week?

That is so cute! She is really doing a great job. I can’t draw that well. Not that that’s saying much. But still, she’s really good.

Proud indeed. Self esteem, mastery and growth through learning as so under valued.
Best wishes
