like looking in a mirror(ish)

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
~ Edward Degas

Emma drew a picture of Teddy and proudly showed it to all of us and we were surprised to see that it, in fact, looked quite a bit like Teddy,
abstract, but Teddy, none-the-less.

No great artist ever sees things as they really
are. If he did he would cease to be an artist. ~ Oscar Wilde

Love that look of joy and pride in her eyes! My kids love, love, love their Magna Doodles. It's one of those must-have kid toys.
