So it has been a little hot in Denver this summer...and even though we must have watered these sad ladies every other day, never ever missing our schedule, this is the end result. This sad image of my purple thumb is just calling out for a journal page. Gesso background, painted with Payne's Grey watercolor, then the image drawn on top. I am planning on using a great deal of artistic license to "enhance" the straggly stalks. Check back, I'll show the page in a few days when I have time to stop watering and get to the studio! Bring on the snow.
