Marin was an elementary school student of mine in days of yore, and she often comes to see me when she is in town I think as a touchstone, to help her keep the pathways open to the untrained artist that she was before she grew up.
This one visit, I got out all the color pencils and we drew at the kitchen table Marin, my husband Stephen, our daughter Liliana, and me.
After Marin left, I went outside to my studio and in my preferred medium made this colorway.
I love it for what we all are, for what we once were, and for how we keep those pieces connected.
