A Nine Year Old’s Perspective on New Years

An art collaboration with a nine year old is always enlightening.  My friend Annjetta and I worked in my studio this week and created this masterpiece in honor of the New Year. She really had her mind made up on the creative direction so I followed her lead with a little nudging and few suggestions along the way.  My favorite part was when she was feverishly painting the fireworks and said “you can really let all of your emotions out.”  (see upper right firework)

And best of all, she got me back in the studio.  I haven’t been inspired lately and she made me realize how much I miss it!

    pretty awesome! I saw something somewhere about established artists reworking the art of children. Can’t remember where, but it was interesting and I thought of you.
