What kind of crazy person goes to the Zoo and comes back with pictures of plants? My kind apparently. Every single time.I took over 50 photos at the Zoo today and the best ones are of succulents and cacti. Go figure. I was mesmerized with these shapes and colors.On any given day, these plants get my attention. But high noon on a sunny day…well, they’re quite amazing. They make a great study whether for sketching, painting or even art quilting. Great inspiration in a humble spiky form.This form translates very well to my current project. Pointy bits in round shapes. You’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
What about you…what plants get you thinking creatively?
