Yesterday a coworker told me the most adorable story. When she was little her family grew a lot of their own food. One day she spotted a zucchini that was well hidden and had grown very large. She loved the zucchini and adopted it as her surrogate baby - naming it Heavy Laden (that's my favorite part)... When Heavy Laden got to be truly too heavy laden and she had to part with it she was very sad for a long time. So last night I just started doodling and it turned into this little painting.
