I am surrounded by nature in my new home. And one of my new favorite things is to sketch the botanical profiles that grow here at the base of the Wallowa Whitman Mountain Range. Seed pods, conifers, bare winter fruit trees, Catalpa, Oak, Elm, pine cones, wild grasses - there's a lot to choose from. And now that spring is imminent, I'll have even more to gaze upon and admire! These sweet inspirations are also starting to show up in my paintings. Can't wait to show you what I'm up to. Until then, here are some botanical illustrations and inspirations to delight your eye.
