Only a few weeks before her death in 2019 I stumbled upon a poem by Mary Oliver. Much of her work was inspired by nature and solitary walks - both of which I'm a big fan of. Remembering that poem prompted my newest linocut of a grasshopper.
I'm intending to have the last two lines curving around the illustration - but I'm still working on the lettering!
Enjoy Mary Oliver's beautiful words below... and savour the long June days of summer.
