Path of life
from The Project Gutenberg EBook of Parables of the Cross, by I. Lilias Trotter

Sketchbook: Lily-Sept. to Dec. 1858

Saturday, June 21st, 2008

Lilias’ artistic talent was already blooming at only 5 years of age. Her mother left a sketchbook with Lilias to draw important events during her parent’s absence. The first drawings were of the docks, with people and ships drawn in perspective and detail uncommon in a child her age.

Other drawings that fill the sketchbook include women and men in their beautiful clothes, a castle, a tree house, kittens, cats and toys.

Toward the end of the sketchbook we find drawings of Advent and Christmas.
