TBT: Don’t Forget the Art Supplies

I guess I should have known that Emily would be drawn to creative pursuits as an adult when she insisted on taking a sketch pad on vacation so she could capture the beauty experienced in nature. While we have this picture of her with pencil and pad in hand, she found the task overwhelming. Rocks, mountains, trees, waterfalls. Where to begin? What should be the focus?

And with an impatient family ready to move on to the next hike or locate the next waterfall, sketching the scenes didn’t become a reality.


I wish we’d have encouraged her to sketch these scenes from the pictures we developed upon our return. With the subject narrowed and adequate time, this desire to create art from nature may have filled the pages of her sketch pad.

Of course, it’s not too late. But now, she’s the one with too little time.
