Went to the Art Institute this past week to draw my favorite sculpture during my lunch break.  Seriously, I think I’m in love with her. 🙂

The final sketch after bringing it home

It was just about time for me to head back to work when this kid ran up to me (maybe 12 years old?) and said, “Here!”  He handed me the drawing he had done of me while I was sketching!  Not bad at all no less! Can you imagine how good he’s going to be as he gets older?!  He was shy and ran off before I could tell him something rueful like “Keep drawing no matter what! Even if you don’t think you want to become an artist…because you could change your mind!”
