inspired by the rich floral beauty of July in the midwest,
I have been practicing "drawing large"
in my "big girl" moleskine.
It is so freeing to sit and illustrate this way,
after all the ATC work with which I have involved myself
These illos are actually the groundwork for
a floral project I have envisioned in a beautifully hand made
Japanese fold sketchbook
I won from the multi-talented Caroline Soer
so many moons ago.
I am very exhilarated by this project.
Soon I will make my first inked mark in that
beautiful little book
and be off and running!
Happy Blooming Tuesday!
“The picture of a flower in a botanical book
its mission ends with our knowledge.
But in pure art it is a personal communication.
until it finds its harmony in the depth of our personality
it misses the mark. ."
