After years of prep work, we were ready to start working on an area near the wetlands. At first, we opened it up as an outdoor gallery for artist James Kitchen’s large abstract metal sculptures. His work is beautiful, and the area adapted well to it. The area continued speaking to me, begging for more. We began building stone walls along the edge of the wetlands and planting vegetation on the banks. George Shaker came to visit with a drone and took photos. I contacted Judy Nelson, a lifelong artist who had been collaborating with me on the labyrinth layout and gave her the drone footage.
Judy called me very excited with a discovery, we sat in front of her large computer screen and there it was; the second dragon. We’d already built it without realizing it and it could have only been discovered by the drone view. Once again, mother nature had a plan we were not aware of, something was working through me and we were simply connecting the dots.
