I used to think I could paint and draw when I was younger. After all, creativity seemed to run in my family with my dad and grandmother. But when I look back at my art work, it's obvious I did not end up with the creativity gene at all:

My oldest daughter has been drawing and sketching and painting and molding and crafting since she was just a toddler and I am amazed at how she has grown in her creativity. Currently, she is taking an advanced art class in high school. She has art work displayed in the school's administration offices, and she has had work published in a local art magazine.
In her latest project entitled "Wiz", she used conte' crayons to sketch a portrait of rapper, Wiz Khalifa. Like a true artist, she procrastinated until the day before her project was due, staying up til 3 a.m. to complete it.
I'm just so dang proud of her work. I pray that she will use her God given talent and realize that it can be beneficial to others in some way.
