In all honestly, they seemed like rather innocent questions to me. I think the real issue here is that Harvin is not comfortable sharing her art and that's perfectly fine and she could have said that.
Agreed on both points. I've been to gallery openings where artists have openly discussed their motivation when asked, and they didn't seem offended at all. Harvin seemed completely out of it when discussing her paintings. She didn't seem comfortable answering questions, and if she wasn't open to the idea of sharing what she's worked on, she's old enough to tell Sharlinda that. She's not a 5 year old. She's pushing 30 or in her thirties.
