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.
