plantain and cardinal flower letter from home
Over the many summers that we've lived on Manitoulin Island, I've collected a wide variety of beautiful pieces of nature. All manner of leaves and wild flowers are pressed in stacks of magazines and newspapers. Seed pods, wild bird feathers, mica, shells, and heart shaped stones are sorted into plastic containers. I have drawers of these things. My new idea is to draw my collection onto watercolour paper and see what happens next.
