“No, not hats,” she corrects me. “Only bags.”
And so, inspired by the magician, I got this pen drawing this morning.
From the left to the right:
“This is a girl and she has a cat (right hand) and a dog (left hand) on a leash. That is a magician, and he has flowers in his hand. This is a swan (left shoulder) and that is a bird (right side, I think she means pigeon. It looks like a pigeon to me). And that (right side of picture) is a butterfly and a bird and a hamster (the one in the circle with the cross. Looks like a hamster wheel to me). And down here are birds and a pebble (the round object). And that is all.”
I like the magician's high hat, and the bow in the girl's hair. His assistant maybe? I forgot to ask. The magician's assistant has lovely eye lashes. I don't think I drew them like that when I was young. Must be the Middle eastern influence; women have long thick eyelashes here. The drawing is quite detailed; the cat has whiskers (she always says to her father, when he kisses her, 'you must shave your whiskers, they are prickly'.) The magician is obviously enjoying himself; he smiles quite fondly and his eyes are smiling eyes.

And who is that looming over the happy family with a flower in her hand?
“Oh, that is you.”
I adore the little fingernails with the pink polish. She does that herself.

These are flower gardens.

This particular structure is a ‘castle’. As you can see, it is quite high (see the height of the doorknob on the right). Now we are all about recycling, so after posting this picture, I will disassemble it, put it back in the collection bag that goes school every week, filled with boxes etc, and then probably next week it will come home again, as part of some other type of project.

Anyway, Hana said I should show this in her blog. So here he goes; Hana and the tortoise.
