Sorry, Dina!

I've long wished I could draw better. My mother, as I've mentioned in the past, was something of an artist, doing commissions of kids and dogs and houses throughout her life in small-town Ohio. Many of her paintings hang in my house.

I've taken drawing classes. I've bought books. I've practiced. I just. don't . have. it. The drawing gene. Altho I was looking at Drawing With the Right Side of the Brain (or something like that) this morning and wondering if that would help.

When Dina Wakely posted a 'quickie face,' I decided to try and copy it. They say to draw what you see, not what you think you see.


I proceeded to do that and here's the result. You can see the resemblance, I guess. I figured y'all could use a Sunday afternoon laugh, so look at mine, and then go look at Dina's. Pretty funny.

Sorry, Dina. I tried.


  1. I think it looks fantastic - you are too hard on yourself.

  2. I like yours better! Nicer (and more) colors and just more interesting!
