I have been pretty busy over the last several weeks and haven’t been able to post like I would like to. But I am back in town, back from class, no longer have company or big parties scheduled so I can breathe a little and post a bit more regularly.
Here’s a small sketch that I did over the last several days. I found these pods on a tree in Idaho while we were traveling to my recent Art and Design class. Not sure what they are called but they are really light and fall apart easily.
Class was fun. We created bunches of samples using a variety of mediums to create textures. And I have lots of homework. So more soon! Off to the football game in Missoula tomorrow, Go Griz!
Those pods are so delicately pretty, and you’ve captured them perfectly in your sketch, but I too have no idea what they are.
Thanks Lyn, I took a photo of the tree so I will have to investigate and see what it is.The pods are such a great shape.
Nice representation of the pods Ruth. I don’t know what they are either they kind of remind me of Jack o Lanterns ( I think that’s what they are called) but they are orange, but similar in delicate paper like texture.
Thanks Marilyn. I know which ones you’re talking about that turn orange. These turn dusky pink. I’m sure that they are in a similar family.
