Gingers Post. . .Inspired me!

Ginger I just got home from coffee with a friend. . .actually I had coffee with my friend and then I stopped by the post office to mail some things. When I was standing in line, there was a woman pregnant with child and her small maybe 6 year old daughter. I was so taken by the child's beauty that I could hardly keep my eyes off of her. I actually thought "This child is so beautiful she needs a picture book about her." The child was so very patient as I tried to study what it was about her that just made her glow. I loved her hair, her outfit, her shoes, her eyes could never have anyone do them justice. . .they were incredible. I am sure she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. How could I tell? She was loving on her mother as they stood at the counter.

Anyway I told myself I should go home and draw her. . .knowing that I wouldn't as I am in a crunch for a deadline. But your post Ginger inspired me to do just that. . .come home and do a really quick sketch of what touched me today. . .I could never do her justice but here she is. . .thank you Ginger for doing what you always do. . .inspire me!!

I can see exactly why you needed to create a drawing for this child. I love the hair, genuine expression of innocence and the socks that won't quite stay up.

Hopefully you will create her in color as well!

She's really sweet! I agree with Ginger - I would love to see her in color :)

Thank you so much! You are both very kind. If I were to color her I think I would re-draw her and give her action and a bit more thought. . .I am just so glad I got the opportunity to really put her on paper. . .so when I do re-draw her I will have a clearer vision.
