Something my daughter drew
Here is a drawing my daughter made. I am so proud of her, because I think she is an amazing artist. I love this visual story she created. This is my favorite kind of art, that sparks my imagination and makes me wonder: What is going on with the two towers in the background? Is the girl wondering which one is hiding a treasure of gems? Or are they both hints in a puzzle that tells us where the girl is from? And isn't her bunny absolutely adorable? Is he real or a stuffed toy? What do you think? Do we really need to know the answers to enjoy the drawing? I don't think so. It is exactly this sense of wondering and the excitement and inspiration it creates that makes it so worth while.
