When I saw this I thought of a scene in a film I love, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION which goes something like this: Donald Sutherland's character is an art critic or historian or something. Regardless, he KNOWS art. One day, when his children are very young he visits them at school and sees the most amazing art hanging all around the room. It is the art of children and he is astounded. He goes to the teacher, a young woman, and says, "Teach me. Teach me how you do it! I want to study with you. How do you do this, take a child and turn them into a Picasso or a Van Gogh?" She looks at him and smiles kindly. "I don't do anything. I simply know when to take it away from them."

This piece, although probably something you would consider a throw-away, has a purity and simplicity that I think are wonderful. Very clean and unclouded and not at all self-conscious. You knew exactly when to stop.

Keep up the good work. Let's see more stuff like this!
