Drawing with pen is another form of art I indulge in once a while. It is truly relaxing, but a little tricky.
The good thing though, is this is for someone like me, who is hands on , restless and free spirited. A little bit of something dainty to work on, keeps me grounded and I love that.
When I found this book in a flea market, it had all these wonderful gorgeous flowers in it, I knew I had to have it.
The thought of drawing them in black and white was appealing to me, then came interpreting my
thoughts about each flower on paper, using a black ink pen to me was daunting especially after several mistakes.
Finally, I cracked the code" PATIENCE AND RESPECT "for the plant!.This meant I had to read about each flower,
SUNFLOWERThen I had to see them in real life, which meant going from one flower store, to another wearing down the sales people with questions, and not buying flowers from the store after all that questioning, was really annoying to the sales person.
It did not matter. I was on a quest, and a few angry looks was not going to put me off. I was going to draw these flowers ,they were important to me and I love a challenge.

I eventually got all the information I needed, sat down, night after night and drew these flowers, just the way I saw them in my mind.
They have all been turned in to posters, for now,and are awaiting my next use for them..... ENJOY.
