Today's daily art was inspired by Let's Sketch It August prompt, childhood memories and Craftsy's 31-Day Drawing Challenge, in bloom. It seems that every childhood picture of me has something in my hair..a flower, a decorative comb or other hair accessories. My mother was and still is obsessed with accessories. My hair was always done perfectly and I always had a handbag.
My art today is my attempt at drawing from a photo. Not bad, I can recognize me. I love hibiscus as it bloomed year-round in Okinawa and it was often my hair accessory. I know I've shared a few photos of my childhood but here are few more. I lost my hair when I was 4. My long, beautiful hair was gone. My mother took me to all specialists and local herbalist to get my hair to grow. Finally, she found a doctor who injected me with with hormones (on my head, I remember screaming). Eventually my hair grew back. But it wasn't the same. My hair was darker, thicker.
