"...and here is the moon."

Why is the process more important that the product? This is why:


This was a Mark Rothko exercise. You know, big rectangles of color. In the beginning there were rectangles, I promise. The artist, age 4, penciled them in and started painting them. Then the process took over and next thing I knew, voila! As she painted the bit of yellow in the corner she said, "and here is the moon." She enjoyed herself immensely and she can tell you a bit about Rothko to boot!
