Dog Picture (trying to think of a more creative title)


Our first dog, a springer spaniel named Solomon, used to chase squirrels. I'm not sure he would have known what to do if he had caught one, but he did seem to enjoy chasing them. We've gotten two dogs since Solomon died, Esther and Melody. Neither seems particularly fascinated with squirrels.

This picture is made of: corn husks, fall leaves, skeletonized leaves, hydrangea, gray poplar, cockscomb, black maple, bark, cattail, moss and poppy seed.

The texture and the color scheme are just perfect, and I like that the trees in the background are much more muted in color. It makes them look as if they are fading into a morning fog.
Do you find it easier to achieve the right look for the plant life in your pieces, because your medium is plant material, or does the smaller scale of your artwork still make it challenging?

Thank you all. I appretiate your comments.

That's a good question about the plant material. I think that it's sort of a yes and no answer, but overall I think it is easier for me to illustrate plant material with plant material.
