New Work, Botanical

I've fallen in love with mushrooms! These are woodland mushrooms. In my original graphite drawing I left the leaf as just a contour drawing to highlight the mushroom. For the watercolor I added a tint to the leaf because it looked too stark and was distracting. This was done with Yarka pan watercolors.

A Month Of Writing

After a spring filled with teaching, and an emotional roller coaster of a summer, I felt I needed to get back to my projects. So I'm all in for generating new PB ideas, working on those already sketched out, and starting a MG novel I've had on the back burner forever. Just making the commitment has  started the ideas flowing. Inhale deep breath, exhale.
