Arting for 365 Day 173: Stark, Dry Flowers

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

My five-ish hour drive to Crested Butte, Colorado was a gorgeous one yesterday. Blue skies, a few leaves left on the trees – windy at times, but lovely overall. I’m going to be in the tiny ski town for two weeks in order to help out my former boss.

After working yesterday afternoon and having a really nice dinner with the folks I’ll be working with, I jumped in on this ~8 x 10″ drawing of dried flowers. I really like the odd starkness of the image. The vast amount of white is a bit unsettling, and yet I’m kind of drawn to it for this reason.

Below are a few pics of the area. I feel like these next few busy weeks are definitely going to be a good challenge for me to stick with my arting. Keep your fingers crossed!
