Snap Dragons -Guest Heart Thursday
This is a piece of artwork I did in the Spring of 1980 for a children's book Mumsie was submitting in a contest. We didn't win the contract, but I came away with some wonderfully imaginative drawings.
The reason I remember the year and time so well, is that it was right around the time Mt. Saint Helen's blew her top in Washington State. I was in the park sitting at a picnic table. As I was drawing I heard a kind of soft pattering on the paper. It was dust from the volcano landing on my artwork. It seemed quite proper at the time--as I was drawing dragons.
Yes, even back then, I hid hearts in my drawings. How many can you find?
