“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” – Pablo Picasso
Ruth Oosterman was a pregnant artist with creator’s block and a need for inspiration. Then Eve was born and became her muse and soon after a collaborator.
“I would paint with her strapped onto my chest and when she was old enough to use a crayon we began sketching together,” Oosterman said.
Eve is 2 now and talented enough to make some pretty cool doodles that serve as a sketch for Ruth to bring to life.
“I have always dreamed of collaborating with her but assumed it was still a few years away before she would be old enough. I realized that we were already collaborating and didn’t even know it.
