Its the nearing the end year of the dragon and I'm a dragon and adore making dragons and writing about them as well! In fact in my
Chronicles of the Wind Hound a seventh year Dragon has entered the Great Iron City, destroyed one of the great pillars of reverence and has gone in search of 'The Hidden'. With a number of commissions for Dragons on my books for March I am experimenting madly with lustres and scales. If you take a look at the page: New Dragons you will see where I am heading exciting times!
On Monday I am working all day on 'Quests' The search for the need for, the hoped for, the desired. Today I am searching for Moses Quest; The ability to part the Red Sea. We all at times in our lives search for our inner strength when our inner weaknesses are controlling us, I think that is true, certainly it is of me. I have been surprised to find out in my researches on Moses how unsure he was of his abilities to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and into a New Promised land. I am looking into the Power of his Gesture's, with the holding of the rod up to the Mighty asking almost for guidance, and the hand that reaches out to the sea. The clay feels strange in my hand as I make this Gesture.
New illustrations are coming on a treat.New dragon illustration of the sculpture made at the end of last year.

New Illustrations and sculptures for the MAy and June Exhibitions here and in Bury St Edmunds. I will set up a page of work in progress

Two very enjoyable workshops for storytelling in the past two weeks:
Midsummer at assington Suffolk. Two day storytelling workshop with Shamanic elements As always: A lovely group of people came together for a 'reaching into ourselves' workshop to help find the individual voice. Thanks must go to Ann and Bob for their wonderful food and hospitality an and to Clare for being as amazing as ever with her supportive creative roll and those organisation skills.
West Dean College:One day beginners course for storytelling. Another amazing location. This is where Edward James lived and actively supported the surrealist Artists like Salvador Dali. Like Assington, its an inspiring and beautiful place.
There have been so many great schools recently and it was lovely to meet up with TUUP again at Bealings and meet Fred Sedgewick the Poet at last. Thanks to all for another enriching day in this inspiring school.
