Proving that some apples fall a long, long way away from the tree


Top dog (ha) my best attempt. Bottom dog, work of 13-year old granddaughter (her mother, my daughter, is pretty good, too).

Sad, isn't it?

  1. What's up with the first one?
    It does display a lack of confidence as you spent as long writing DOG as you did sketching it. It's likely to be a bitch from your drawing.

    The second is excellent but she cheated and didn't use a magic marker.

    1. I hadn't thought of it gender, but you're right. It's a bitch!

  2. Well you can see yours is a dog and it is wagging its tail, but I have to agree your granddaughter's is very very good. What a talented young lady x

  3. Your granddaughter shows real talent. I like to dabble too; my other hobby.

    1. Maggie, I can't even dabble. As you see.

  4. Had it not been for the wagging tail, yours could have been a cat with very large ears or a fox with a very small tail. But it's a dog - and some dogs DO look like that!
    Your granddaughter used photoshop to make a photograph look like a painting, didn't she!
    (No, of course she didn't. You wouldn't have showed it to us in that case. She really is VERY good, and I'd like to see more of her pictures.)

    1. Yes. The wagging tail was a stroke of genius ;)

  5. Perhaps you should have tried to draw a horse rather than a cat, er dog. Your granddaughter on the other hand shows considerable talent. I should add that I couldn't even match your cat er.. dog.

    1. Definitely dog. Cats don't wag. The wave.

  6. Christmas dog. Top dog seems to be wearing a hat from a cracker.

  8. Different kinds of art! Seriously, your granddaughter is very good. My son teaches art and design and daughter is also creative - they both drew and painted from an early age.
