But this piece is special and it isn't just about the movie. It was inspired by one of my favorite students when I worked at First Street Gallery Art Center, where I was an Art Instructor to adults with disabilities. "Josh" came to our studio with a passion for his artwork and a great sense of humor. He was a bit reserved and shy... but that all changed when, somehow, the movie Mrs. Doubtfire came up. We probably drove the studio nuts quoting all of the best lines from the movie, but we had a time. So it's no wonder that when the "Staff Selects" Show came up (an annual art show featuring a staff piece along side a student piece) that Josh would be my partner. For months we both worked on our pieces, exercising attention to detail. Meanwhile, I saw my student's art skills and confidence flourish. This is one of my most favorite pieces to date because it reminds me of the hard work, the laughter and the goofy vision shared between a student and a teacher. I think we brought out the best in each other. :)
Good Luck on all of your endeavours, Josh!
