Botanical Studies

the beauty of plants
please scroll down

I have always loved sketching and observing plants; blooms, foliage, even dried forms, influenced no doubt by my Mom’s interest in plant identification on backpacking trips where we would try to identify flowers, trees and mushrooms. Recently I’ve been taking my smaller studies of flowers and transferring those drawings to large-scale paintings, or doing plain-air studies from life such as with the paintings of tomatoes, daffodils and gladiolas.
