The Painter

The Painter

by Peter Catalanotto
A child's description of her relationship with her artist father reveals their enjoyment of one another whether they are cooking breakfast, reading the comics, or dancing. Sometimes, of course, he is too busy working to spend time with her...but after a long day without his company, she is allowed to join him in his studio and try her hand at painting, too.
