WHY PIPER STARTED PAINTING: Piper is somewhat handicapped (handicapable) because of a limp, terrible hip dysplasia and arthritis. She can barely walk a block. The only thing she runs for is food. After six weeks of Piper excitedly waddling into the studio every time I painted, I realized something fantastic was happening in her eyes and wondered if she had a desire to paint. All I had to do was shake up a can of paint, rustle paper or clang palette knives and she appeared. One day, I put a paintbrush in Piper’s mouth and held out a piece of paper. Her first attempt and painting “Introduction” was a success! Piper didn’t run away with the brush or splatter paint everywhere. She stayed in one place and worked her magic. Piper’s technique is very basic and seems instinctual. Maybe Piper is mimicking me? I don’t know what drives her. All I know is that she truly enjoys painting and it’s a great way for us to bond. – Jessica
