On the back of an envelope

Because that was the heaviest paper around.

That one little puffball in front of the moose is for the above-the-knees single dandelion flower outside the front door that so transfixed me on our first visit to Alaska.

So: this is how I draw. This is how my little sister draws.

You know that old insult, Stick to your knitting? Well yeah. Makes perfect sense to me, I think I will, thanks.

Yes, your sister’s art is beautiful! Isn’t it wonderful to have so many types of artistic talent represented in your family?

Same beauty, different media.

Well, you two are different types of artists, for sure! Nothing wrong with that, though I understand being wistful when looking the other way.

Being able to draw well enough to get the idea for your craft, currently residing solely in your head. onto paper so you can remember it later? Great! Being able to draw well enough that even other people can see your general idea and say “oh, yes, that’s a moose!” – even better!

(but yes, your sister is not merely recording concepts for later use, but is turning out finished products via 2D art: very, very cool. 🙂 )
