“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.
