Our 4-year-old granddaughter is very proud of her art.  She likes to visit Art USA and 'study' their modern art.  When she finished a particular painting, she wanted to take it down to Art USA and show it to the nice lady, Melissa, who works there.  Melissa really made over her painting and then asked Arrie if she wanted to exhibit at their place.  Arrie agreed, so Melissa put her art work on an easel by the front door and it is now on display there.  She asked Arrie if she wanted to sell her art and Arrie readily agreed.  Guess I need to take salesmanship lessons from Miss Arrie!!


  1. Yeah, but she has your talent and no hesitation in appreciating it. The joy of being 4. How did we lose it?

  2. What a cute little dumpling. I see evidence of her grandfather in her adorable face, and your talent in her painting.

    Little girls that age are dauntless. Our 3,4 and 5-year-old granddaughters each used the microphone to tell a joke at their great-grandfather's recent 90th birthday celebration. Their teenage cousins didn't say a word.

    How sad that we lose this sparkle and confidence! Mine went down a creek I crossed on the way home from school in late October of my first grade year. I "accidentally" dropped a less than perfect paper there rather than show it to my mother. Alas!
