Spring has Sprung- Illustration Friday
I just hate when the colour all washes out when you scan coloured pencil. Sorry. Nonetheless here you have my famous Prickly Pear Cactus. It wasn't until I dug it up out of the woods and dragged it home that I discovered it had imbedded thousands of microscopic needles into my body! (Elmer's glue works wonders on removing cactus needles BTW!) Don't miss my other "hike find" below!
Artists create with their hands in many ways. I also enjoy working the earth.
Since I am profoundly proud of my "Weed Tree" I would like to share it with you all. (Some of you may recall I posted a photo of it when I was still new to the blogosphere last year.)
I frequently hike in the woods looking for plants to drag home and grow in my landscaping. I now have a beautiful Northern Prickly Pear Cactus a Holly Tree and two Yucca plants that are flourishing as we speak. But the one I am most proud of is my Cherry Tree. Everyone made fun of me for nearly a year, telling me it was a weed. Well, just look at her now! See with the right materials the earth can be your canvas too!!!
