[BEGIN LOG.]

MALTHUS: Ms. Schultz, are you —

SCHULTZ: Oh, please, call me Cheri.

MALTHUS: Are you familiar with this painting?

SCHULTZ: Oh, that looks like… hm. Yes, I recognize it. 2007, I think? I remember, because I finished it right before that whole awful market crash. Thank God my husband's pension wasn't touched. He always had a head for money.

MALTHUS: This is Girl with a Pearl Earring.

SCHULTZ: Is that what I called it? I can't remember the —

MALTHUS: It was painted by Johannes Vermeer.

SCHULTZ: Who?

MALTHUS: What about this one?

SCHULTZ: That's — I did that one in 2009. A Farmer's Life. What is this —

MALTHUS: This is American Gothic, by Grant Wood. It was painted in 1930.

SCHULTZ: What?

MALTHUS: And this?

[Silence.]

SCHULTZ: What is this about?

MALTHUS: Do you recognize this work, Ms. Schultz?

[Silence.]

SCHULTZ: Yes. I finished it just last year. I was very proud of it. One of my largest pieces. I call it Barnyard Hijinks.

MALTHUS: This is Pablo Picasso's Guernica.

[Silence.]

SCHULTZ: Who are you?

MALTHUS: Ms. Schultz, where did you learn to paint?

SCHULTZ: I — I don't know. After my husband died, I just started — I don't know. I just needed a creative outlet. I love painting. I'm very good at it. It just came naturally. That's normal, right? Natural talent. I'm a very expressive person, and I just thought that — who are you?

MALTHUS: Ma'am, I need you to come with us.
