I recently added “Roadside Finds” to my online shop. I picked these weeds on one of my daily walks. Like the saying goes, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.
I have been really busy signing and photographing new work and will be adding the work to my newly revised website soon. With the holiday season upon us (so hard to believe!) I thought I would begin to feature work here as well.
I have also been updating my neglected Fine Art Ezine!! It’s now looking like a cousin to my new website. lol Working on another edition of my ezine which should be published in early Dec. It really is tricky publishing a blog, website and adding to social media, plus most importantly doing my artwork that my Ezine got neglected.

Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
Statice is such a beautiful filler for floral bouquets. The other day they had this gorgeous violet Statice on sale at the supermarket. Needless to say, I couldn’t resist taking it home with me.
I adore its papery texture and that it lasts for a long time. The bonus is that it can also be dried and tucked into glass bottles for further enjoyment. I love drawing all the tiny ruffled edges of this delicate flower. They have an airy, wispy feel making them even more enchanting.
The leaves and stems are also quite interesting. Visions of cactus come to mind when I observe their wavy, grooved stems. The leaves are tiny and often protrude in small twists, giving a hairy appearance. If you take a moment to observe this flower closely, you will find many fascinating parts that make it unique!
