Imitation really can be best form of flattery

I popped in to the Aurora Cultural Centre today to tour my exhibition with a visiting friend from Seattle. While I was there, Clare Bolton, the centre's gallery coordinator showed me the art that some of the 5-7 year olds from the Saturday art workshops did after viewing my exhibition. I was so thrilled! It's incredible how much young minds can open up and soak in what they are looking at. I'm amazed at how much they really saw in my artwork to be able to go back to their classes to continue on the sketches they'd started in the Great Hall Gallery. To think I may have inspired a new generation of artists is humbling. They've also inspired me, in turn, to continue my own progression.
