Arting for 365 Day 194: Evolution is a Sticky Thing

`3 x 5″ ink and acrylic on paper

Yesterday I sat down to look for images on the web and came across this amazing image of an Australian Sundew. It was breathtaking. As I read about it, I found it even more amazing. The innocent looking thing is actually sticky and carnivorous!

I was immediately inspired to create this small piece. I loved the form of the flower and wanted to draw something with even more depth and a fuller set of globular pieces. I think this piece would be fun on a larger scale as well – perhaps painted with watercolors.
