These are the only pieces that I have of any of my own childhood artwork. First one was a Christmas card to my parents when I was perhaps 8 years old. I guess I was destined to be a landscape artist!
And the second one is drawn on the back of arithmetic (addition) homework. Since my little brother is 7 years younger than I am, this was drawn when I was about 7. I like how pretty I look, with a southern belle type dress (where did that come, in rural Pennsylvania ??) and curly hair. And the “turtule” has four feet – a budding wildlife artist then. Ha!
