Up a Tree

I always wince a little as I try to figure out how to explain drawings like this...
Sometimes I wonder if they're meant to stay in the depths of my brain where they came from. 
I drew this a few days ago - I got to paint my department's office last week, and it resulted in me running around the office barefoot for a few days so my shoes wouldn't get all painty. There's something wonderful about being barefoot. I've been really embracing it lately. It makes me feel like a kid! And when paired with some long denim cutoff shorts, it makes me feel like a Tom-Sawyer-esque rascal. Like I'm about to get into mischief. And it made those work days so fun. So even though I was at work, the days had a hint of childhood and mischief to them, and this was my doodle-method of illustrating that. Kind of silly. But our office looks so much better now! Nothing silly about that.
