If  you were still and  looked long enough you were likely to see a salamander tail slipping into a crack or a garter snake poke out of a crevice. It had a heavy cover on it  and I don’t think I ever saw inside but I loved wondering what it might be like,  imagining driping and plinking echoing in the magnificent depth and strange  pale creatures living in the dark, wet murk.

    nice drawing ; I also like those places but I don’t like snakes !

  • Agree with Sylvie! However, you’ve nailed the air or mystery with such little creatures. Beautiful as always.

    When my family visited the old homestead in East Texas, the old well was workable. Daddy used to open the top lid for us kids to peek inside – damp, mysterious and it smelled of Earth/a little moldy. The farm was sold many years ago; wonder if the ole well is still there? Thanks for the beautiful drawing and the jolt of my memory.
