I think I have mentioned before what a fantastic art teacher the girls have. Every single time they bring something home it's pretty darned impressive which says alot because Lily, although very artistic, creative and artsy is not one to draw, free hand. Mr. T just brings it out of them, that or he does it himself. LOL

Last week they had to do self portraits. That would immediately throw me into a panic. They all had mirrors, Lily knocked hers off of her desk and smashed it, bloody clumsy oaf but still managed to pull of the assignment. Lily, for one so slight and delicate is as clumsy as I was as a child which is saying alot.

She bought this home.

I think it is really rather good. The only thing that I questioned her about were the eyebrows. I asked her who did them. She told me she did so I asked why she did them like that and she replied in her typical, I'm a tween tone, "seriously Mum, would you have drawn these and why do Chinese people have such weird eyebrows? "

Ummm, I don't know why they just do Kiddo and I don't think you have weird eyebrows I think you have 2 caterpillars living above your eyes.

She did an amazing job! I knew instantly it was a self portrait even before I started reading your post. You have a very talented artist on your hands. Even with caterpillars as eyebrows. :-)
