Drawings and embroidery
Letting a week go by before adding to my blog, one would expect to see much new work. However, working on the 8 by 8 inch pieces has slowed while creating a series of 8 desert wild flowers.
In the meantime I adding three 8 by 8's of non-wild flowers to the group of 80. Each of these embroideries first started as a colored pencil drawing/painting on paper.
Seeing this month's Artist magazine featuring roses stimulated me to show my drawing of this rose.
I broke off a branch of the someone's Tulip tree while I was walking in our neighborhood in the Spring. I brought it home and drew this version immediately as they seem to die quickly.
One year, at Christmas, a friend gave me an amaryllis bulb. I drew it several times as it was opening into this gorgeous large blossom.
Just 40 to go to make the 80 8 by 8 inch art works.
