first representational drawing

11 June 2014

"This is a woman, and her baby. She is pregnant.The baby is inside her belly, and you can never see inside a belly" 

She originally painted a baby inside the woman's belly, but she covered it with black paint as she was explaining it to me.

Oh, my sweet little girl. 

And just like that, I am back to my own childhood, reading The Little Prince and laughing at the grown-ups who see a child's drawing but cannot understand it- 
they always need to have things explained. 

"All grown-ups were once children - although few of them remember it."  
Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince 

I'd love to know what you think!

How can a person be described within just a few words?
We are much more complicated -and amazing- than that!

There is something magnificent in telling stories. Short stories have even bigger impact- it takes all the gifts of a storyteller to invent a unique short story to reach the soul and bring an uplifting effect.
