Lily the artist looking at Elmo, her subject

Lily the artist,  her subject and the masterpiece

the way Lily has been painting lately is blowing my mind!!

not just because she will knock out piece after piece but also because before she puts that brush on the paper, she will name her subject

whether it be Elmo, Abby or the people she knows best like me, Will, D and K, she has a vision

this week she took it a little further by looking at the subject matter while painting (like having Elmo sitting for her above)

i didn’t paint when i was as little as she is

and i didn’t paint while pregnant or in the first year of her life

but, the way she has been painting lately, reminds me a lot of myself

crazy genes/dna…..
