Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Around the time I began drawing orchids, I learned Darwin had done quite a bit of research on the distinct flower. He seemed absolutely fascinated by them. It seems as though Darwin was enthralled with all that he studied, which is probably what made him so successful. Smarts and talent (if there is such a thing) are important, but passion and drive seem to outweigh it all.
