Indian Summer of 1989

I drew this little indian girl in 1989. The only thing I can remember is that I used a cheap charcoal pencil, a tortillon and my fingers. Though my parents always supported me when I was young, I know they were a little bit worried about the fact that their son became a painter. At least, I made them proud winning a yearly subscription to our local newspaper…

One day in 1990 I decided to quit drawing: I got tired of pens and pencils and all that stuff because I became fully aware that girls didn't like painters. I was wrong: years later I realized that girls really like bohemian artists. But friends, that’s another story.
