Petrea volubilis

I started this picture years ago when I was a teenager, and didn't finish it until this year when I decided to do the art thing full time. I'm very happy with the way the veins on the leaves have come out, and the difference between the older leaves and the pale new ones. It's unusual to do a botanical artwork on this kind of rough paper; I like the effect, though. I don't know why I scanned this before signing it - it is signed now, and it was bought... by my mother, who claims that she really wanted it and was not just sorry for me. I even think I believe her.

The End

People never read new blogs. I'm writing this today, knowing that anyone reading it will be at the end of a long archive binge in the far future, after I've figured out how to be a blogger and my art's got a lot better than it is now. Or at least I hope it has.

Has it?

And did my archives keep you up all night?

And did I become famous?

I hope you enjoyed it, and that you'll keep checking in to see my newer posts.
Bye for now... this is just like time travel! See you in the future.
