A Stronger Desire Than Ever














“It is all the same, drawing, painting, modeling, the irresistible desire to copy any beautiful object which strikes the eye, why cannot one be content to look at it? I cannot rest, I must draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me it is a stronger desire than ever, and settles on the queerest things. Worse than queer sometimes. Last time in the middle of September, I caught myself in the back yard making a careful and admiring copy of the swill bucket, and the laugh it gave me brought me round.” -From the journals of Beatrix Potter
