This stuff has been simmering in my head for as long as I can remember: A tiny village with tiny bridges and tiny windows. Hideaways and magic. I finally had the motivation to draw it out, and I was not disappointed. Aidan came upstairs at one point and looked at me, smiling. "I want to live there," I said. "I can tell," he replied. I should mention that my husband is wonderfully indulgent of my whimsical ways. Maybe he means it, maybe he's faking it, but he makes me feel like I can take on the world. For example, as we stood over my drawings I asked him; "I feel like I should draw an entire mermaid kingdom under the water..." And he enthusiastically burst in; "Absolutely!" How I love him. This is the most practical, level headed guy in the world and here he his, cheering on the mermaid kingdom!
