Renewal

Illustration Friday (theme: "renewal")

It's amazing the lengths that some plants will go to--creating the most amazing and alluring blossoms conceivable in order to seduce passing pollinators to ensure renewal... This seductive echiveria from Southern California was no exception...it certainly caugh MY eye!

This is an original watercolor painting from my archives, which is now in a private collection.

Thanks for visiting!



The title of this painting is "Passion", and it is available as a limited edition giclee print, ready-to-frame in dusty blue matting, in my Etsy online shop

Such a soft and colorful rendering! I love closeups of flowers, and am a bigm fan of Georgia O'Keefe's work for that reason. I recently did a pastel flower closeup painting. You can see it on my blog, if you wish to. I have decided to follow your blog, as I really love your work. Love your whimsical pet people too! :o)
