This is Julia's entry into the Doodle 4 Google contest. I really love it. After she turned it in on Monday, I checked out more about the contest and found last years regional, state, and grand winners. My mom opinion is that Julia's entry is the best in the world, but I have to admit that there are an awful lot of great kid artists out there. Still, I think that she could be comfortable in the company of regional winners.I so hope that she is able to take direction and learn about art. I see such potential but talent is a small part of an artist. Mentors, teachers, guides and practice, patience, and more practice. Would that she love the work enough to make that journey.
