A Mother Lets Her 4-Year-Old Finish Her Drawings. She Never Thought It Would Lead To This.
November 12, 2013
At first, artist Mica Angela Hendricks didn’t want her four-year-old daughter near her new sketchbook. She is serious about her art, and she knew little Myla would want to scribble all over the pages. Then, her daughter said the words that changed everything.
“If you can’t share, we’ll have to take it away.”
She had used her own mother’s words against her, and now Mica had no choice but to indulge Myla. She let her daughter finish one of her sketches, and pretty soon, they had a whole collection of collaborations.
After a while, Myla would start the day by flipping through her mom’s sketchbook asking, “Do you have any heads for me today?”Source: twentytwowords.com
After the outline of the sketch is complete, Mica finishes the artwork with a splash of color.Source: busymockingbird.com
Mica claims that her amazing artistic experiences with her daughter have taught her a lot about being an artist, and that you have to let go of control for wonderful things to happen.Source: busymockingbird.com
