I had such fun with my pens & markers yesterday that I pulled them out again today while Cassie baby napped. She gave me just long enough to bang out a complete drawing.
These are drawn from a couple of beautiful skunk cabbages my mom photographed last March.
And here are the originals. They just thrust their motley whorls out of the icy mud and offer a burst of color in an otherwise dreary setting. My mom often finds skunk cabbages near our cabin and appreciates best the ones that “don’t know it’s Winter.” Actually, skunk cabbages can generate their own heat and melt their way throw snow cover!
I could have handled aspects of the drawing more effectively, but I like how it came out for a few hours enjoyably spent. If nothing else, it gives me some ideas on how I might approach the subject next time!
I’d love to hear your feedback or thoughts if these swampy lovelies have something to say to you.
