Nothing has shown how balance in the garden makes the best sense than this growing season. We started off dry, with lots of sun. Then switched to damp, even waterlogged, with little sun.

These were so much fun for me to do! The two pieces are a continuation of the mystical creatures series I started last year.  It started with a seadragon monoprint and then a mystical seahorse monoprint.

I’m thinking of creating a unicorn, winged horse, and griffin. We’ll see where that goes; I’m having so much fun making these I can hardly wait to start the next one!
