This drawing is based on the memory of an actual experience. It is the "visual journal" of a child. The loft includes hay bales and a cat. Below is the horse stall and, most importantly, Beth riding Rhoda the horse.

The New Yorker see Art World Section. "The Escape Artist" by Calvin Tomkins in, Sept 28, 1998 pages 102 and 103 is an example about artist, Mark Rothko.
Critique. This is a periodical of contemporary graphic design. A relevant article is: "Drawing Out the Modern Mind" by Betty Edwards, Autumn, 1997, pp 39-44 explains the R-mode/L-mode theory of the mind. "The modern mind achieves power by combining logic and intuition. And you can sharpen the perceptual skills that underlie intuition by strengthening your drawing skills." page 39. If this is a valid theory, it has serious implications for the way most teachers teach art in elementary schools.
