Surely some of you guessed that Belle is my favorite animated character. Beauty and the Beast was our first date. She loves books. She yearns for adventure. She ends up with a beast. Okay, maybe that last part only applies to me in his princely form.
I have had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. I survived. There was no thriving today. It has taken all that is within me to post anything at all. So, I confess that this is NOT a free hand drawing. Like my skills could improve that greatly overnight! I traced the outline of Belle and then I filled in the other details. I don’t have the eyes right. Or the nose. Or the hair. Because it’s partially my work. Sometimes we get by with a little help from our friends, so I applaud whoever created Belle and gave me a form to trace. Call me a cheater. See if I care. Or offer me grace in this moment. I really need it today. Tomorrow will be better!
I leave you with a piece of useless trivia (The beast’s real name is Prince Adam), and my favorite quote from the movie: “It’s not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting *ideas* and *thinking*…” ~Gaston
