Almost done 

Is it done yet? Nope. I thought so initially, but there needs to be more leaf work to tie the pages together. I’ve started planning the back page image of a withered dried up flower, not very beautiful, but that’s the theme of this book, the circle of life. 

I’ve never spent this much time looking at one particular type of flowering plant. Amazingly enough, I still have a couple blooms remaining on a few plants (we have 7 plants total strewn around the house, each receiving different light and water levels) plus loads of photos. The flower structure is fascinating and the colors amazing. It’s been a struggle to capture the essence of the flowers, but it seems to be there. 

More work to come once I get everything together for the show setup on Friday!

  1. Isn’t it interesting how the more we look at something that is really quite familiar, the more we see These are beautiful flowers, and I am there will be just a bit more linking them. Have fun with the withered one!
