Illustrated poem, appearing in issue #3 of Illustoria magazine

Published on 2017-11-13

I decided to do a 'reverse' illustration....painted the image first, then figured out the words. I tried pleading with my poetry-experienced friends to write something for me but then I realized my deadline was enormously short, so I tossed my own meager verses into the mix. Nerve-wracking to do something out of my comfort zone, but these things are good for a person once in awhile, yes?
