Art has become the most visible signal for monitoring my daughters emotional well-being. I know if, at just over two years old, she is able to sustain the attention to produce a painting or scrawling of marker and crayon, then she is feeling comfortable with her surroundings and place among loved individuals in the world, and additionally, she knows those individuals will be there to appreciate the effort. These wonderful pieces I attribute to the presence of my parents and their current visit, although she never seems at a loss to make something. It is very encouraging as a father to say the least.
