Practice Portrait #1


My daughter is making the most of her school vacation by practicing her portrait drawings. I’m sharing one of them here.

Image source for her drawing can be seen here. Thanks to the owner.

Business idea

My daughter and I are thinking of selling personalized bookmarks, shirts or cloth bag with her drawings as design. The idea of teaming up with my daughter came when we were discussing about potential source of income for our family. I told her that I can provide the materials that she needs while I’m leaving up the designing to her. We’ll probably ask around to know what design is popular or appealing to young people. My daughter is also willing to accept portrait design from clients. If someone wants to add the image of backwoods cigars to the design, he doesn’t have to buy backwoods cigars for reference; we have the internet as vast photo source for the image.

Thankful for God-given Talent

I feel so proud everytime someone praises my daughter for her portrait drawings. I never imagine her to be that good at her age. Although she loves to doodle at an early age, she only learned to draw the exact image of a person when she turned 9 or 10. I guess it was Michael Jackson who inspires her to draw more. She drew various images of the international pop icon after his death. Later on, she started to draw other famous and well-loved artists of their time.

Someday soon she can be consigned to do portrait for other people. And she intends to do this to support her hobby and studies as well. Since she is doing portraits, it doesn’t affect her drawing whether the model is wearing womens coats or just a simple outfit.

Hubby and I believe that God has given her talent that we hope she’ll use to inspire others.
