How She Sees Herself

When Mercy started school on April 23rd they did a portfolio of what she knew. Part of that was drawing a picture of herself. I was amazed to compare the latest self-portrait to the one she did just five weeks prior. I think it is interesting that in the first picture she used only one color and that she didn't draw herself with arms or a mouth. In the second picture she is colorful and all body parts are intact. She really is doing great!

Wow, what a dramatic difference. It speaks so much about LOVE, that's what I'm thinking. She's more self aware, more artistic and happier, see what your Love is doing? Wonderful.

At a creative artwork shop we were told to draw two pictures. The first one i drew was very reserved in colouring, the second, very vibrant bright colouring. On reflecting on both picture, I felt the reserved colouring represented my British side and the colourful one, my black West Indian side. I feel there is an element of that in your daughters drawing.
