I suppose I am drawn to this at this “birthday” month of mine. I started to draw feathers and read the above mentioned book in 1994 ……… the beginning of my path as an artist. And although many years inbetween I did nothing creative in terms of art, I suppose I was still creating in different ways.
So Snake , thistle, Malachite ………..somewhere I have a picture of two snakes I did way back then. And I have a really good piece of Malachite, which I will put on my alter, just not sure about the thistle ………..perhaps if I went for a walk……….
this drawing is by M.G. Knoch ( not sure who he is however I need to mention his name)
