The coloured-pencil sketch of a lily our 15-year-old goddaughter gave us as an Unbirthday present. It's gorgeous.
This is the pastel sketch she gave us Christmas before last. I absolutely love it and plan to have it properly matted and framed. It reminds me of the so-called "X-ray style" of certain Australian Aboriginal tribes, who portrayed animals as if they were transparent, showing organs and spines. It's a beautiful and fascinating style I experimented with interpreting in the 90s.
She's talented, and thinking about a career in the arts. Her mom worked for the telephone company before becoming a SAHM, and her dad works for IBM, so maybe we've been a good influence on her :)
