I hope she didn't copyright this
I sent 13 copies of The Creative License to various family members. My sister Jan, a confirmed non-artist, just sent me this scan of one of her first sketches after reading the book.
My response was:
OH MY GOD !!!! Jan your sketch took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes - REALLY !!! it is so wonderful - I can't believe it - WOW !!!
Jan responded to my compliment:
Aw, shucks, I was hoping for a positive reaction but this is TOO much! Especially coming from you. Anyway, it is my favorite sketch so far. As you see, I’m not sure how to draw trees, etc.; but I thought the dark windows and lack of brush was a nice metaphor for the emptiness the Goodrich was without you …
The sketch is of a cottage where we vacationed with my sister for about the last 15 years - This year was the first year we did not go - I missed her too.
