Tale Untold

K 2009. Study in coloured pencil.

Isaac wasn’t a happy child. Nor was he unhappy. He spent his time reading or lying in the grass looking up at the sky and the trees. He didn’t show much interest in playing with other boys and hated it when his grandmother invited them to play.

He had no patience with those whose mind wasn’t as quick as his own. Apple sauce for brains, he called it. One day, one of his unfortunate visitors lay under the apple tree laden with ripe fruit.

As the apple fell, Isaac crowed: like calls to like!

The idea of gravity was born.

    1. Thanks. Yes, I think we do see ourselves in a slightly better light than others. And maybe that’s not even a bad thing…

      btw Your comment was in the spam folder, don’t know why. Luckily I just went through it.

  1. This really made me smile – both the story and the apple. I love the left side of the apple. The color and reflection are great!

Let me know what you think...
