This piece appeared in my sketch book early one morning, before my thoughts were fully awakened (often the best time for imaginative drawing). I knew there was going to be a giraffe and a girl, but the details were unclear. When I began the painting several days later, I was surprised and a bit tickled by the face on the giraffe, who was obviously a bit put out by the whole idea of giving someone a ride. He has won my heart, as has his heavily-crowned rider.
