Do you remember the moment or a day you first saw a giraffe? I remember how I visited the zoo for the first time and was amazed by its incredible length- from its tail hairs, eye lashes, long legs to its neck and head…this animal seemed to be created and shaped around lengthening. As I was drawing the picture, I come to realise the imponderableness of this amazing creature. The body, the long neck, colours, and the unequal-sized legs have struck me in awe.
I believe as we get older, it becomes more difficult to recall the first impression of the world’s amazing things.
My penguin always helps to remind me of seeing the world in a clearer, limpid and uncritical eyes. At least he gives me a chance to appreciate things that we tend to take for granted.
I hope he talks to your heart and mind as well.
