We are now on day 40, nearing the half way. My 100 day project’s page is filling up, full of earth tones. There has been days when it hasn’t been easy to create a piece, but I have to keep going… keep learning… keep making and not judging myself, which is probably the hardest thing.
I’ve found a small dragon in the woodshed.
Think it must have come from deep inside a forest
because it’s damp and green and leaves
are still reflecting in its eyes.
I fed it on many things, tried grass,
the roots of stars, hazel-nut and dandelion,
but it stared up at me as if to say, I need
food you can’t provide.
It made a nest among the coal,
not unlike a bird’s but larger,
it is out of place here
and is quite silent.
If you believed in it I would come
hurrying to your house to let you share my wonder,
but I want instead to see
if you yourself will pass this way.

I really enjoyed working on this new set of prints. They are now available for sale here.
