Drawing お絵かき

My imaginary flower...
This one, I copied a pattern that was painted on my tea cup.
Lately, I've had opportunities to draw with my dance teacher's 6-year-old daughter who lives upstairs.  Because I've known her since she was 6 months old, and I've been seeing her everyday since I moved in downstairs a year and half ago, she is like my little sister or like a niece.

Occasionally, she comes down and says, "Let's draw some picture!"  If I happen to be busy, I just say, "Sure. You're welcome to do that here, but I have to finish this now, so go ahead, and I'll join you later."  Then, she takes out the paper, crayons, pastels, and a water color kit and start her artistic creative process.  It's cute to peek her working very hard on whatever she is drawing at that time while I cook or work on my computer.  I am often by myself at home, so it is nice to have a company like this time to time.  Also, she is a great listener and a speaker. You would not think you are conversing with a 6-year-old :)

So, just like that I was given this wonderful opportunity to draw.  Since I became a "grown-up," I hadn't really simply drawn, so it was refreshing and fun. I was grateful for that.
