My Art Life

Capturing beauty so many ways

Before photography
Dominated the ads,
My commercial artist father
Freelanced at home.
He’d sit me in a corner
With paper, paint and brush:
Baby artist with art-making dad.
One day while swishing
Gold paint on brown paper,
I stopped to let my father see.
My swishes looked like a Rafael cherub.
I knew it and so did my delighted dad.
It wasn’t my art skill —
I was just three years old —
