"All Children Are Artists. The Problem is How to Remain an Artist once he Grows up." - Pablo Picasso
My daughter is into drawing right now, so we bought her an easel from Ikea a few days ago. She drew Phineas, Ferb and Perry on it yesterday while watching the show. She is not the best of drawers, but I adore her creativity and all of her drawings. I hope she will remain creative, if not an artist.
Speaking of creativity, I discovered mine in the form of bentos. I was surprised that this turned out to be my art, as just a year ago, it never entered my mind to make one. Now, it has become a hobby that I truly enjoyed. Some people find joy in dancing, or playing online games, or simply watching TV. This, is how I spend my hours <3
