11 x 14 Pen and ink drawing on Bristol Vellum


Inspired by the poem below and the shells my kids collected on a summery day at the beach.


Did the frail Mollusk know, as it fashioned it's cell,

He was building  a palace within which to dwell?

I long for the story your lips could tell,

Of the forces which made you a beautiful shell.
