My niece Erika has been into painting lately and I couldn't be more excited about it! I know she takes after her dad, but since he's my brother and all, I think I'm allowed to say that she takes after me, too! Hahaha. My brother is a talented artist and I started dabbling into arts & painting early in life because I'd see him drawing and working on charcoal paintings so effortlessly. It blew my mind! I started making my own drawings, my mom took notice and sent me to summer art classes. It paid off. =) I still have some framed artworks at home, and I still keep a sketch pad with some pencils and brushes stashed somewhere.
I'm so proud of Ikai! :) I mean, isn't that giraffe the prettiest you've ever seen? I mean, really. =)
