Drawing II

This is one of Richard's childhood drawings (age 4 or 5). Artistically he was very precocious, and developed a sense of form quite early. He was also fascinated by mythical creatures. These are horses and dragons, I suppose, though the mentality of kids being what it is, I might be getting it a little wrong -- that is, the "dragons" might be forms of quasi-magical lizards that he had specifically in mind. (My friend Doug told me a story about his nephew Andrew scolding another kid who was making a toy dinosaur fly through the air at pre-school; Andrew told his classmate: "Dinosaurs can't fly!"). Well, these are flying animals. Hopefully, I've got the terminology right.
