Very Pretty. Yet another creative person in the family. There are never enough.

Subject: Oh! She likes to draw TREES!
They've always been my favorite drawing subject, though I think she's already much better than me. :)

Nice composition and color scheme, too. :) Perhaps some day she will illustrate one of your novels or work on a graphic novel with you. That would be ragingly cool.

Wow. Grade 4. Double WOW.

The perspective is worshipful. There's subtext in that picture. Does she articulate it or simply refer one to the work of art?

I think it's a red tree to her. The expressive vocabulary you're seeing there is not fully conscious. Yet.

It's a picture window into what she could become. I doubt that she is willing or perhaps able to deconstruct her vision of the tree and how the tree is placed in the landscape. That is unimportant. What is important is that she can fix the image/vision in her mind then transfer the vision to paper. She demonstrated true talent with that picture. It is nothing to push, but definitely something to gently encourage her to do again and again and again.

She gets lots of encouragement in this arena. She's a Waldorf kid, her mom's an artist, and then there's me...
