This drawing was inspired by my niece, Rosa. A little girl who loves nature.
We stayed at their house last summer in England, and she was to be found at all times in the garden. Wearing the prettiest of floral dresses, her cheeks rosy, her honey coloured hair wild about her face, and a chicken or two tucked under her arm, and some kind of creature tucked into her pocket. She loves nature of all kind. I remember one day as we explored an ancient crumbling castle, her sister and my little boy were off climbing castle walls, and she was searching on her hands and knees in the rock crevices, looking for unusual things. She came upon a (surprising beautiful) snail, that she named Colin, and proceeded to carry around with her for the rest of the day, stroking him.
