This drawing was done for the 1998 musical performance of “Platero Y Yo“– wherein the Spanish guitar music was inspired by the Pulitzer Prize winning poems by Juan Ramon Jimenez. I imagined an idyllic setting wherein Platero (the wise donkey) was relaxing in a marsh next to his friend, the poet — with the poet now amongst his family (which in the poems he did not have).
