After badly scraping my heel today while trying to calm a nervous toddler, I decided I deserved some much needed tangling! I pulled out my Toned Gray paper and set off on a new gardening adventure.
This piece started with the gate. I wanted to explore the idea of an overgrown garden that can't be contained even when locked up. I love how the shading on the door came out!
Do you like my little spider and web?
I'm really loving these gardens. They are beyond meditative for me. I draw a stem or leaf, and just let it all go. I don't even notice where my flowers or other patterns are going. I let them grow wherever they want to explore. It's fun and freeing to let art happen without worrying about the consequences.
