i tease prairie for always fiddling. i suppose the devil makes work and i do smile (and sigh just a little) when i find a small pile of teeny pieces of shredded paper where she has been sitting. i am as likely to find drawings all down the side of a shopping list or my pile of yarn ends i have sewn in reduced by much snipping to even smaller pieces! i found these engravings yesterday and really smiled. i thought they would make a cool painting, perhaps i'll leave the necessary materials lying around!
