The upside of never clearing up is that an eclectic assortment of things that pass through my life end up in “found arrangements” all over the house.
At the kitchen table one morning, I found camellia from the backyard sitting next to a jar of toasted sesame seeds. When I settled down there, they were joined by my ever-present chai cup, a lovely vintage mid-century modern cup from a friend.
And here are some more oranges, because it’s still citrus season in California.
Also, tulips. Lots more pieces coming in this series because I love drawing flowers through their life cycle, particularly towards the end of it.
I’ve listed the mix of media I used in each of these pieces, in case you’re curious. I’m really loving mixing media for a layered look. I’m in the process of putting together a new online class that centers around playing with mixed media. If you’d like to be notified when I release a class, join my mailing list (where I send out a newsletter every month with sketching tips and first access to new workshops).
