Illustration Friday: Faded
This is a cropped section I did some time back of a bouquet of wild flowers in a glass pitcher. Do you sometimes do a sketch that you like for one reason or another, but you can't quite picture it as a finished piece? When I saw that the topic for today was "faded", I immediately thought of the flowers in my garden and about how quickly everything becomes faded after the long wait for them to bloom. I don't mean for that to sound so pessimistic, honestly I don't. Maybe I'm feeling this way because we had a downpour here last evening and my peonies were just beginning to come into full bloom. On the upside, I planted beets and tomatoes from seed and they are doing surprisingly well. I'm looking forward to checking their nice and slow progress each day!
