My little girl took up painting classes this summer in a tiny gallery overlooking a harbor -- I think this provides her a good space to clear her head and come up with these amazing paintings. No where did I ever come close to painting like this in my art school days. And I went to school starting out as a painting major. She comes home so jazzed and at least with two (yes) paintings, and makes me so inspired to do something creative. My biggest challenge is finding a wall to display them. I love each one.
