But the following exhibit at the Scarab Club saw the judge, his son, and another artist create a collaborative piece that was entered, admitted and, not surprisingly, recognized. So then his son, a year younger than the kitty stencil artist, became the youngest artist, to date, with work admitted to the Club. You may have your own thoughts, but we theorize the judge, once he realized the maker of the piece he’d admitted into the previous exhibit was recognized for being the youngest…well…
We laugh about that to this day. When I say we, I mean my husband and I. We both know the kid, the kitty stencil artist, because she happens to be our youngest. For privacy, we'll refer to her here as Ms.
Ms. is the kid who adamantly refuses to let us refer to her as an artist of any kind. The young lady – who painted Hokusai’s Wave – The Great Wave off Kanagawa -- on the back pocket of her jeans (pictured below) – without any picture for reference! My Japanese colleagues and students, including one from Kanagawa, were just as impressed as I was.
