It's so very nice of you to leave that comment for me. I really appreciate it. Any encouragement that I get is welcome. Unlike you though, art has not always been in me - I never ever drew, even as a child, and never thought I could. But I was always interested in pictures and having read that anyone can learn to draw, am making an attempt too! It is not easy I have found - am able to so some things on some days way better than on other days.
I did that Pencil Sharpener drawing in just a day or two, and was pleased, it being my very first one. But in some odd way, that has prevented me from moving on to the next graphite drawing. Am getting cold feet!
Once again, thanks for your words, and I love your art. I can understand how you could draw that sneaker without erasing - your lines are SO steady!
I just came across your snowman Atc and I think it is wonderful! I also read your bio and know your fears, although you have a greater talent then I. I hope you find it in yourself to let go of those fears, you would not have been asked to do the children's book if they did not have the faith in your abilities. I also think your snowman would make a wonderful character for a children's books. I am a huge fan of Children's illustration and think it's a wonderful art form! Good luck Dvora, believe in yourself, you deserve it!
