Question: Do you have a favorite piece that you have created? What makes it special to you?

Answer:  Yes, I have a painting that was a collaboration between myself and my grand-daughter, Penelope. We spend a lot of time together and at times it's in my home studio where she also has her own little studio. We were spending time there one day when I decided I could get an underpainting done while we were messing around. I pulled out a large square canvas, set it on the easel and put 70's Carpenter's music on. We both grabbed a large brush and I gave her the spray bottle. We had the best time dancing, dipping the brushes with color, swinging them on the canvas and spraying water. She titled the painting "Rainbow Water". Later that week I finished the painting. The next time I picked her up from school she told me the art teacher had taken her brush away.  I said "on no" and asked her "what happened?" She said, "well, I was painting and swinging my brush around, you know like you and I where doing to the music"___So, a little explaining between at home and classroom expectations was forthcoming!
