Mom read a great quote from designer and colorist Kristin Nicholas: “Don’t compare your year 2 to my year 18.” Or something like that. Ella had been having a crisis of confidence in Zentangle drawing lately. She kept comparing her drawing skill to Mom’s. Mom took a page from Kristin’s book, and said, “Don’t compare your year 11 to my year 54!” It’s a big difference in experience!
Today, Ella seemed to regain her confidence. She took her time and, even though she was frustrated with one of the patterns today, she drew a striking Zentangle.
