[Mixed media collage on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments.] This is an early collaboration between my granddaughter and me. I've been TRYING to get her to draw with me since she was a few months old, but until recently, she's been more interested in putting the crayons and cardboard (cardboard is tougher to rip than paper) in her MOUTH than in drawing with them. With this piece, however, she was feeling INSPIRED and plunked a chunk of banana on one of the smaller pieces of cardboard that I'd brought to the table. I liked it---immediately caught where she was going with the piece---and I added a second piece of banana! Next, I photographed and embellished the image using digital magic. Unfortunately, the original piece HAS been destroyed at this point. (Banana, in general, isn't a great medium for artistic expression---unless you also use duct tape...) However, this DIGITAL documentation LIVES ON!!! And now, one lucky entity can officially OWN this brilliant piece! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool) & Felicity Echo Hanson...even though she can't write or type yet!
