I sat with paper and pencil and drew a girl drawing in the dirt. I believe that from the dawn of our species we have been drawing, and that the urge to use the fine motor skills of our hands is ever present, even if for no practical use. The urge to create, to express, to change… that is what we are all about. 

I looked at my drawing and liked the subject, but it needed refining. I worked on it slowly over some days. I then worked carefully on adding the watercolors. I added a little color, then waited a few days to see how the effect pleased me. I wanted it to be in fantasy land, colorful with the ecstasy of creation. I thought carefully how I should finish coloring the drawing. I then sat one night and completed it, and time stopped and I was in fantasy land for a couple of hours.
