    Vineyards Awaken

    I like to draw pictures where there's all kinds of stuff all over the page, all the time, everywhere, and no room for words. I just like it that way, so I knew this project would be a challenge because I'd have to leave a blank space for the haiku.

    I decided I'd leave a big space in the center, and draw Syracuse in the distance, clouds up in the sky, apple trees and grape vines off to the sides. So far I'm bored to death with my whole idea, so I added a little girl sniffing flowers near the bottom of the blank space.

    Then I tried to fit the words into the blank space and they didn't fit! Lucky for me there was room up in the sky because I didn't want to draw the whole thing over again.
