Another Flower

I’m officially at the half-way point with my Natural Patterns Alphabet as of this flower:


“Zinnia,” 5 x 5 inches, pen and ink, prints available in my shop

I’m afraid my friend Era is going to think I am stalking her brain again with this one, as it seems like another name for this series could be “Era’s favorite things.” What can I say—great minds think alike? Really, I think we’re both just in love with natural things—who isn’t?

While I was drawing this one, I just happened to have a couple of other drawings out (I try to look at other drawings when I draw new ones in an attempt to get the letters to be a consistent size), and they went together so marvelously that I had to take a picture:


As I mentioned a while back, several different sub-sets are developing as I go along, including this “blossoming-themed” set. I will have to start photographing the others—there could be fruits, vegetables, woodland items, sea life. Yoohoo! I love sets!

Actually, I was making up some groupings of artwork to submit to local stores, and I realized some nice sets in my abstract work, so I made them into flickr sets—bold abstractions and fine line abstractions. It’s fun to look back at old work and see how they evolved and hang together now, and how the different pieces play off each other.
