Leo

I found this on the ground on the way to work on La Granada around 5:20 pm yesterday. (Click image for larger.) It’s a child’s drawing in Crayloa crayons using blue violet and blue green, with accents in yellow, black, and tan. It reads “Leo” in large letters in the upper left-hand corner.

My sister and I debated what it could be for half an hour or more and haven’t come up with any definitive conclusions. Bunny noted the smiling face with yellow eyes, about midway down on the right; the drawing of what looks like a person with a walker in a white circle near the top; and what seems to be a falling star on the left side. I noticed the black line near the bottom of the page possibly denoting land and thought it might be a purple tornado. Our guesses are as good as anyone’s; what do you see?

All art pieces by children are masterpieces, but most need to be deciphered/explained.
