Phoebe’s sycamore leaf

20140907_155828

Phoebe is really excited about keeping a journal of her observations while adventuring.  Here she draws a depiction of the sycamore leaf, a tree native to California.  Yesterday she asked to bring materials to draw the koi in the pond, too.  It’s great.  Art is about refining your ability to see deeply into things.  When a child (or an adult for that matter) is asked to draw what they see in their own way, they notice small, beautiful details previously missed.  This is how I feel when I practice macro photography of wildflowers; the camera enables me to exalt the tiniest of features.
