Grammy and Abigail - Inspiring Each Other

My granddaughter, Abigail, came and stayed with me for a week when she was three.  Each morning, she would take me by the hand and say, "Come on, Grammy, it's time to go to your studio and do art"!  She had her own small table set up with paper, paint, water, pens, pencils, all the stuff necessary to have fun, and her favorite programs on the Tele (Abby work, Figure 1).  After she left, I painted some fabric (Figure 2) while the Abby impressions were fresh...and created Abby at Three (Figure 3).

...and, perhaps, some of my work has inspired hers (Figures 4,5)...
