And This Is Why I Draw! or Harold! Where Can I Get One of Those Purple Crayons!?
And so I draw. I find that as I attempt to sew or write or even to do elaborate cooking, that the thought, if only I could just draw this, comes to mind often. I remember the book from my childhood Harold and the Purple Crayon and I wonder where I could get myself one of those purple crayons. In this book, Harold had a magic purple crayon and everything he drew with it became real. Just think, all the items I'd like to sew but can't, could be drawn. Now, I'd probably want them to be a different color than purple. But if I could find one of those magical crayons, I bet I could learn to love purple. And then all those thoughts I have that I long to put into words, could just be drawn.
This dancing swan is an example of pages and pages of unwritten words poured into one drawing. Hmmmm. Maybe I should have drawn her in purple.
But next time I feel a need to stitch something, I'll be looking for my purple crayons!
