What are you doing?  I asked. They replied and said nothing. But I see you scribbling down, moving dots from an end to another to form lines, lines wavy, zig-zagged, straight and wobbly, applying layers of colour, tints and shade and still yet you call it nothing,

How can this be nothing, how does one create nothing. Now teach me something, teach me how to create nothing, I want to imagine and draw something so aesthetic and so complex and simply call it nothing too.

I have created nothing, it is nothing because I have learnt not to limit the possibilities of a piece of art and by so doing the said piece has come to life. I have given it freedom to become like my good friend Ukoha Yadichinma said. I too am learning to create “nothings”.
