On the Great Road Trip of 2011, Sara and I had the privilege of staying with our friend Renee, who lives near Grand Junction, Colorado. It was so fun to visit Renee for once, since she's usually the one driving out to Utah. And now that I know it's not that far to her place? Well, I might be more motivated to visit.
Anyway, while I was there I drew her daughter this picture. You be surprised how easy it is to get a kid to like you when you can draw. They think it's some magical thing! Yes, I'm admitting that I bribe kids into liking me with my drawing skills. It's kind of an ice breaker, I guess. Sometimes kids can be shy, and there's nothing like a few pictures to make them smile. That, and Renee's daughter gave up her room for me for the night, so I had to say thank you somehow. And there's nothing like a mermaid to show appreciation.
