My 11 year old granddaughter sent me a picture she had taken of a zebra. She wanted to know what I thought of the photo. Like any good grandma I used encouraging words about her photographic abilities. I then said I would love to one day paint it. She quickly responded that she hoped I would say that and yes I could paint from her photo. She had one requirement. “Grandma, I want credit for the photo.”

Hum, now where did she learn about that? I assured her I would and proceeded to paint her zebra. I have asked her if she liked the final product. She whole heartedly said yes she loved it.

Now she hasn’t asked me if she can have the painting. But I’ve been thinking. If she does should I give her a life lesson that includes a payment plan??
