In 4th grade our art teacher took us outside to draw a tree during class. I was excited about learning to draw so drew the best tree I could. Then I looked at the girl next to me and saw her picture. It was so perfect, and when I looked back at my own I saw all the mistakes I had made. My inner critic told me I could never draw and I didn't try again until just recently. This is the first tree I've tried to draw since 4th grade. It's still not perfect, but it's a start and now I'm hoping my critic will finally quit telling me "I can't..."
