It has been a while since I have shared any of my fine art botanic work. For those who know me personally or professionally know that nature is a big deal to me. The weather affects me... a lot. I get grouchy in the winter and sing loudly around the studio when it is warm. It is the way I am. I am built with a fine tuned ear tilted to nature. It took me a couple of years to realize that my eyes for the natural world are different than others. I see things others don't and it has been a treasured gift to me. I began teaching my Spring portfolio class at Chicago Botanic Garden again and when walking to my car ready to go home I decided to stop. I took ten minutes to myself to look more closely at this beauty through the lens. This giant orange ranunculus was singing her song on a particularly depressing cold wet day of Spring.
Thank you Maker for making this.
