My daughter was born to skate. When I watch her on the ice, I see she is truly free. It was so funny, the first time we put skates on her, we were dreading the eventual falls, crying and resistance. Once we laced her up, we set her on the ice and waited for disaster. Her response was to effortlessly skate away. The very first time. A natural.
To encourage her in this, she goes to skating lessons every week. I have started to pass the time with my sketch book in hand. She was my model this time around. These are not the most polished sketches in the world, but they were really fun to do!
