The Existential Gardening of Layla Morgan Wilde

Not being a photographer any longer, I possess no garden photos of my own to publish here but writer Layla Morgan Wilde certainly does.

Her feature I Garden, Therefore I Am is an organic marvel unto itself, and if you appreciate discovering an isle of calm in the midst of a crazy world, Layla's feature is not to be missed.

Photo Collages always tend to catch my attention, too, of course, and multi-talented Layla has perfectly captured images and words of August's fading summer moments within a gilt-edged frame which will delight both viewer and reader!

Meanwhile, this particular SMA entry needs gracing with a photo or two of its own, something garden-y, botanical, seasonal. How about a couple from my photographer daughter Maya Henderson?

As you may know, Maya is an online fiberista who hand-spins, paints, and dyes all manner of wool and fluff into fabulous skeins of yarns for special knitting projects. How fortuitous that she can use her way with a camera to showcase the color-drenched yarns offered in her etsy shop. Yarn colors are morphing there just like the seasons!

Grapes (July 2009)

Bees of Atlanta (July 2010)

Oh, how about one more snap before summer ends altogether? Perhaps something less focused and...evergreen, a personal favorite of mine!

Creosote Blooming in Moonbeams

Here's a semi-completed close-up of my newest botanical drawing Creosote Blooming in Moonbeams drawn with my favorite oil and watercolour pencils on paper...moonbeams complimentary. If you can tell from this cropped little tidbit of an image, the style is my oft-used blend of Virgo-botanical and Pisces-visionary.

But just to be sure, why not mosey over and snag the fuller and finished version of this illustration? You'll find it right now in my 24/7 Art browsing place, Jude Cowell Art Shop @ Zazzle.

Or if you prefer, try a direct link to Creosote Blooming's
wall poster page.

Pattillo Wakes at Moonrise!

This illustration is entitled, Pattillo Wakes at Moonrise.

Well, of course he does. For he's an armadillo with a natural habit of foraging at night for ants and grubs! Mmm-m-m-m...yum yum.

And here's Pattillo catching a little shut eye, making a pit stop on his journey to a greener clime.
