You Know All Those Trips to Marfa Are Paying Off...

When, upon spying the above Celine ad while watching you flip through the February Vogue, your daughter says, "Hey that reminds me of those smushed cars by that artist guy John something." (AKA John Chamberlain.)

I love it.

I had a similar moment when I was on a field trip with my four-year-old's class. They were moving from gallery to gallery looking at paintings and talking with the docent about what they were seeing - colors, shapes, a bowl of apples, night, day, etc. The walked into another gallery and the docent asked "Boys and girls, what do you see when you look at this painting?" - anticipating a list of bright colors, circles, black lines and swirls... Frances said "I see a Picasso."

Completely proud. I smiled the rest of the day. Our frequent roaming in the museum are some of my favorite times.
