In more upbeat news, I'm getting ready for a show at my local bookstore Off the Beaten Path. I've decided to title the show Short Stories and display my original linocut children's illustrations. Some of my prints have text in them. Others don't but they were created for a certain story. And there are some pieces that don't already have a story, but they look like they should. So I've decided to make large title cards and include on the card a tiny short story for each piece. I think it will be a fun show for a bookstore!
Here's one of my new stories. What do you think?
On the other side of the sky where clouds blossom lived a little girl named Rose. Rose watered her garden every morning until the summer sun was in full bloom.
In the fall Rose harvested wishes on stars under the light of a crescent moonflower. She kept the wishes safe all winter until it was time to plant them in the spring. With careful tending, the wishes grew into new stars on the other side of the sky.
