Copy Machine & Pegasus:
I was looking in the studio for something else and found this drawing instead. It's a drawing, or a collage, or both, made with the aid of a copy machine, back in the days before digital scanners. The first part of the drawing was the flying horse, done on a torn piece of transparent vellum. I put that in the copy machine, then a ginseng leaf (from Pete's Spring!) and some birch bark, copied it, then added some details with a pen.
It was made for the cover of a booklet of poems that I was working on, so the reference is partly to Pegasus, a symbol of poetry.
But it was a real horse too, that I traded my first car for ~ but that, as they say, is another story!
