Thanks to my mother, a number of my childhood artworks are still around. The oldest surviving ones are the Four Early Works, which I did some time around the fifth grade for my grandmother. They hung over her fireplace until she died, then passed to my mother. I now display them in my own home, to remind me of how far I have come. These childhood things were not done on archival materials or with good quality paints, so both the paintings and the papers have faded or yellowed over the years.
