I find ferns to be so beautiful, even now when they are beginning to turn brown. I love how they are patterns within a pattern, but always with a bit of variation.
Fall is beautiful in Illinois, but it still makes me feel sad. At least now that I’m older the seasons fly by faster and faster, even winter.
For fun I thought I’d also share with you an image my good friend made from one of my drawings:
Doesn’t that look cool?! Now, if only I could get her to do that with all of my drawings, I’d have a book! I’m sure this was her gentle way of nudging me into action. I still have several species of plants to draw, and then what? It would be an enormous book. Should I only include some of them? How should I divide them? I’ve been working alphabetically by genus, and currently have close to 200 drawn. Do you have any suggestions? I’d welcome any thoughts.
Also, I’ve been working to create a website here and I think it is coming along although there are definitely still bugs. Feel free to look around and let me know what you think. One of the bugs is I’m not logged on, for some reason. So when I ready your posts, WP won’t let me make comments! 🙁 I’ll sort that out, and get caught up.
