How Does Your Garden Grow?

OK, so suffice it to say that I am very inspired by this new texture/pattern I’ve started working with. While this new piece is a little different than the land features in my recent previous posts, the inspiration is still coming from the same place.

Here’s a detail of the garden in the center:


It’s really fun to see how these pieces turn out because they start with one itsy bitsy shape and keep building, so it’s impossible to know how the end product will look until the piece is finished.

I’m pretty happy with this one. I came up with the concept and the title before starting the drawing, but the execution was kind of a mystery, especially for the garden part. Quite by accident/necessity I started using a slightly modified texture in the garden background, and that may be showing up in some more pieces now that I’ve found it out.

I think a lot of my pieces are a bit whimsical, but these new pieces are really delving into that realm, and I’m loving it!

Happy Spring and abundant gardens to you!
