Corks was sitting in front of me and she said "draw me, mommy" and at first, I completely resisted. It's something I've never done before. But she pushed me. So I said "okay". But no judging was allowed... I have to say I sooooo enjoyed it. I am not sure there is a likeness and lots of it is still intuitive but I loved looking at aspects of her beautiful face and trying to capture them. I loved the tweaking and the lighting... of course I love this piece so much. I love that it pushed me out of my comfort zones. And I love that we got to create together. There is something quite beautiful having someone sit in front of you, quietly and looking into each others faces. It felt sacred.
When I was done, she then sat and drew me. Which was quite impressively done - she's much more free and braver than me. I admire that about her.
We have agreed to do this everyday these holidays. Hmmm maybe by the end of it - I will present one that actually looks like her... I'm rather excited by this little holiday project.
