On Tuesday I was sent a message from my daughter in Ontario (Rugrat). She had sent me a great pic of some art that she had designed herself. I love looking at her artwork.
Y’see, Rugrat is a really good artist and has been for awhile now. She had dreams of going to art college after high school (she’s 16 and graduates next year), but has now changed her mind. She still loves to draw and the photo below is from a glass pen that Sunshine and I gave her for Christmas.
She doesn’t want to go to art college anymore. She doesn’t like being told what to draw and thinks she wouldn’t enjoy herself. She only draws animé and pretty much refuses to do anything else.
She now wants to become a hair stylist; not so much someone who works at the local Super Cuts, but someone who designs hair and does whatever styles she wants to do.
I’ll support her in whatever she wants to do, but it almost seems a shame to see her waste her artistic talents.
