Little Mona Lisa
6 weeks from learning how to hold a pen to My Little Mona Lisa
Story and artwork from Beata Drazek
I am a mother and a grandmother living life rich is diverse experiences; a journey of joys and sorrows. Art has always had a place in my life, in its many different forms. As a proclaimed ‘party pooper’, I was much more eager to spend my time in a gallery or a museum than a rowdy group of people.
On June 7, 2021 I became enticed by a light shining on my little tea pot and starter to wonder if I could draw it. The entire process was like a dream – where time did not exists, hunger was forgotten and only I and the light and shadow remained. This opened a flood gate of creativity with daily drawings of common objects and then portraits.
I feel that drawing is like a second nature to me but I know that it takes a lot of work to draw well. I need tools to create that which seems to be ready in my soul.
I know that the Drawing Academy holds that which I need. I would love to win the drawing course in order to learn how to skilfully put on the paper that which already exist but needs help to be born.
I hope that my friends will vote for me trusting in my diligence, pure intention and hard work in order to create beautiful art.
