This is wonderful El. We have all been there. Luckily you can draw!!!
The struggle is so real
Wow, these paintings are beautiful! I stumbled on this blog randomly because I was surprised an 11-year-old was producing such high-level work. As a 35-year-old myself, I'll definitely add to the "we've all been there" thoughts from others. :) I hope my 6-year-old daughter is this skillful and expressive five years from now! If you're looking for more perspectives on this very frustrating experience, I'd recommend this interesting talk by a successful writer describing her ongoing struggles with the creative process: https://www.ted.com/talks/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius
This is excellent. Incisive.
