Discovering Daddy's World
Drawing - Freehand Digital Pastel
"One day when I was three years old, I climbed the stairs from the dusky laundry room, where Mommy rinsed clothes at the sink. I have no memory of knowing what I would find in the room above. When I pushed the door open, a magical world of light and color flooded over me, and Daddy stood before his easel working on a painting. He smiled in gladness to see me, and beckoned me in. I still see so vividly the intensity with which he worked, streaking the canvas with color, standing back from the easel with a squint, advancing again with his brush like a fencer with a delicate foil. Entranced, I watched him for a while, and then he set me up with my own little canvas and brushes. I don't remember what I painted, the memory perhaps knocked out of me by my misadventure on the way back to Mom in the laundry room. I fell down the stairs!"
