Weed DrawingsDecember 22, 2015

It has been so warm so far this winter – I have been out riding my bike and hiking in the woods. I always see the same weeds that I have seen since I was a little kid. They are all so familiar that I never really spent the time to look at them closely. For some reason, I looked at them with a renewed fascination and marveled at how delicate and intricate they are. They are very common weeds – usually a nuisance to most people. I saw them as quite beautiful so I decided to draw them. I drew a Queen Anne’s lace, a thistle and a teasel. If you live in Ohio you will recognize all of these weeds. I may or may color them but the drawings from my sketchbook are below.
