Garden Lattice

I started this piece off with just a variety of flowers that I knew how to do off the top of my head. I like having something to look at when I am thinking of new ways to do the same thing differently. The problem with this is that I typically have several little doodles lying around and I really wanted one piece that I could really enjoy looking at and learning to adapt it in many different ways.

By looking at the beginning of my drawing you can tell that I just had to do something to bring all the flowers together and I really didn’t’ want to do a open garden scene. So I figured if I could just add in one element across that page that makes everything come together it would look better.

Now, after seeing where it started to where it ended up at, what is your favorite part of it and how would you have joined them all together differently than I did? Let me know in the comments below.


Oh, the seasons are changing and the leaves are turning. Before long it will be all about pumpkin spice and then peppermint EVERYTHING! So before time flies past, I wanted to take a minute to appreciate the green leaves and the flowers and everything in the summer we are soon going to be without.

For some reason, I thought that each art piece leaves an impression, a thumbprint on our hearts. While I was drawing this, I thought the swirls looked like fingerprints. Just made me realize that everything we think and feel goes into our artwork.

Thank you for taking the time to allow my art to leave an impression on your heart. I can only hope that it inspires.
