One of my favorite drawings that she did is one titled "Purple Mouse". It's a great story of how something that you think is a disaster actually turns out to be something fantastic.
Beatrice was commissioned to draw a dog and had some trouble with her first attempt. She was very upset by the shape of the body and the ears and wanted to give up on the artwork. I saw that with a few strokes of the pen she could turn it into a mouse but I didn't want to tell her what to make. So, I suggested that maybe some whiskers and a long tail would make it look more interesting. She was not a believer but did it anyway.
Lo and behold, a purple mouse presented itself! She laughed and was quite pleased with the end result. And, she titled it "Purple Mouse".
