New Beginnings.

desk in the morningHaving ‘finished’ East of the Sun I need to paint this years MBF card. Usually takes about a month. I have about a week. I am distracted by the presence of moth winged hares in my mind’s eye.

the Moth-winged hare by Jackie MorrisA lesser known British species of brown hare the moth-wing flies mostly at night and makes its next using harebells. They sing as they fly, a song similar to that of a skylark. Very rare, but hoping to instate a breeding program and release more into the wilds.

Desk at the end of the daySome work was done and a small visitor came round for a while. Lovely to see Betsi and Claire here.

Robin with Betsi MairI wonder what she is dreaming and what she will grow up to be.

About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    What a beautiful baby, little hands, dreaming eyes… Robin’s expression too is lovely as he gazes into that little face. Such precious moments…
    I love the moth-wing harebell hare… I followed one – without wings, the other night lelloping along in the headlights in the middle of the road, reminded me of a Ted Hughes poem…
