Sojo has entered a new stage of art, one where she does not simply draw picture after picture in a sketchpad but instead finds something she loves and works on it over a few days. She adds backgrounds and details and spends hours doing this. Her newest Angry Bird obsession is the Star Wars game that came out, and this picture of Yoda took a few days and a lot of love and patience.
My heart almost burst today when she walked around with rolled up artwork tucked in the side of her backpack. She talks of being an artist when she grows up, and I am tucking away certain pieces for her to remember in the future. Another burstable moment was watching her with her good friend from class. These two are silly and goofy and gorgeous together. They think they are twins because they have the same height, the same hair color and are exactly the same color of brown.
