I come by doing art the natural way. My mother was an artist and so there was always art around me. Undoubtedly she was drawing, painting, or doing other art all through my tenancy in her womb.
They say art can't be passed on through blood, but I am not so sure.
So here I present, the first in a series of artwork done by Arlene, my mother, who is 83 years young. Her back yard is full of squirrels and rabbits and she says they once even had a wolf there. This hand-drawn pen and ink drawing is obviously a squirrel.
