Steps of Ink

A lonely man, as he walks through the park during the day, comes across an easel displaying a painting of a woman. Fascinated by the work of art, the man instantly falls in love with its beauty, and begins to imagine that the woman inside the painting is real. The fantasy becomes so powerful that reality blends with imagination. That's when the woman escapes from the painting to dance with the man.
