I recently brought home a variety of small canvases with the thought that Francine (my sister) and I would paint together while having our morning coffee. I wanted Francine to select the size on which she would like to paint. Francine chose the 5″ x 7″ canvas.
Awake early in the day, I had been reading my poetry, for a book I am in the process of publishing this year. I had written a piece about our having coffee together in the mornings.
Francine looks at the blank canvas and asks:
“What should I paint?”
Would you like to paint how coffee makes you feel?
