I am currently reading the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, just about finished with Book #4, Wizard and Glass. I am listening to the audiobook narration by Frank Muller (He is excellent and I am so sad that he dies before he finished the rest of the series!). There is this rhyme in the story:

Bird and bear and hare and fish, give my love her fondest wish.’

That line had been bouncing around in my brain the last few days and I was inspired to begin this piece. I am working in pastel on toned paper. This is still in progress, but I just found out that there will be an animal theme at one of the galleries in our local June Art Walk, so I guess that gives me some incentive and a deadline to finish it!
