Coreopsis Grandiflora

Trying to get into the mode of drawing again, has been so hot outside and ants everywhere. I decided to pick some flowers for the house. When planting this year I scattered some wildflower seed and coreopsis flowers began taking over, they are huge. Very happy in my little garden, however all my other flowers are being pushed around - maybe they like the shade though. I started with a pencil drawing with shading and mixed in colored pencil and thought the effect was interesting, very deep... I like deep.

Illustration Friday - Wrapped

I found a meadow of daisies in Oregon years ago and saw the daisies wrapping themselves around this old stump. Daisies are one of my favorites... have a good weekend!

Lemonade Stand ACEO

I have been seeing quite a few kids this summer with lemonade stands. I didn't have one when I was a kid because I lived way out in the country on a farm so I've always thought they were neat and looked fun. Hope they all did well with theirs...
