Why ‘Rolling on my bleeding heart’?
I collect stories and write down things that interest me to make drawings about.
Whilst visiting a new friend in Anacostia, we were standing in his backyard. He suddenly put both hands on top of his head saying loudly, “AH! She’s rolling on my bleeding heart!” I turned round to see his cat rolling on top of his Bleeding Heart plant, which he had just planted. He had even made a barrier of bricks around the plant to try and stop the cat from walking over it. But, there she was happily rolling right on top of it. It was really funny, at first I did not know what a ‘Bleeding Heart’ plant was, and thinking about what he said literally made me want to create a drawing.
