"A Cellular View..."

...no microscope needed...LOL:)
"Nature will bear the closest inspection.
She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf,
and take an insect view of its plain."
~Henry David Thoreau

What a wonderfully, clever and complex design.

I love the layout and the layers. I would love to try something like this.

Anita Davies said...

Beautiful composition Margaret.

Hmmmm...Have you had a letter from me at all? I thought it would be there by now.

Rachel H said...

Lovely idea and the layers create such an interesting effect. I don't know how you come up with all this stuff! For a minute inside your head... :)

Jules said...

I love all your appropriate quotes. Which comes first?: the qoute as inspiration for the design, I wonder...???? Or the other way around???
:o)

Jules has asked a question that I have often wondered. I also love the layers and the word incorporated. I always see so much to think about in your sketches.

I do looove the intricate work on this - you can sit next to me as I write in Arabic and I'll next to you as you do your lovely intricate drawings.

Beautous!

I wondered the same as the rest, what comes first.

Margaret Ann said...

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments...here on this past today and everyday!

To answer the question of the day...The art always comes first...then the quotation.
When I find the right one it's like putting the cherry on top of the Sundae...maybe even better!
Thanks for asking! :)

Great composition! This reminds me of black & white designs I used to do several years ago, you've inspired me to start again.

I love the composition of this one. I have tried one doodle zentangle so far but am so inspired by your work... it pales in comparison.

Neato, and I love how the letters look 'leafy'.
