The Artist at Work

Sabrina received a blank canvas from my sister as a New Year's gift. "A new year is like a blank canvas, full of possibilities," said the note attached. I helped Sabrina get set up for painting and then left her to focus, but couldn't resist tiptoeing back down to the basement to peek in on her progress. She was so in her zone--humming, talking to herself, selecting colors and brushes--that she never noticed me. It was so inspiring to watch this artist at work.
