MYM – Yellow flower

I’m so proud and happy that a lot of friends take notice of my daughter’s color painting. Aside from landscape she also draws human faces too. I will share her recent drawing in my next post.

Some of my friends are wondering if my daughter had attended art classes before. I told them she has yet to attend one. My daughter learns to draw and paint on her own. She reads art books and research for reference photos as often as she can.

Another friend is encouraging her to join contest to hone her talent and give her more confidence in herself and her abilities.

Thanks to all of you who appreciate my daughter’s talent.  🙂

Art books for Naomi


My daughter is looking for contemporary art books on the Internet.  She wants to get some tips on how to properly apply water color to her drawing. The last time we were at the mall she was checking an art book. It’s a bit pricey so she looked for other less expensive art books. She saw two practical guides to drawing animals and portraits. Hubby used his credit card to pay for the items that also include a few pieces of art materials. My daughter was excited to have her first set of art books. When we have extra cash we might buy her guide book to drawing still life and another book that teaches step-by-step exercises to apply water color to drawing. By the way, she is celebrating her 13th birthday on Monday. One of her wishes is to enroll in art classes this summer.
