COASTAL WILDFLOWERS IN SAN DIEGO – PHOTOS & ART

SAN DIEGO COASTAL WILD FLOWERS BLOOM AFTER THE RAIN.  Four years ago I traveled the coast of San Diego County photographing and researching the wild flowers, which bloomed after our first rainy season in 10 years.  These are a few of my photographs along with ink and black colored pencil drawings for my Pattern Series.

PATTERN SERIES – CORMORANT ILLUSTRATIONS WITH PHOTOS

Pattern Ideas series – Cormorants in La Jolla. Using my photos with illustrations lightens my soul. In the early morning Brandt Cormorants fly into the sea to fish. In the late afternoon they return flying in a single line to rest on the bluff. I carry this beauty in my heart.

DRAWING SEA LIONS FROM MY PHOTOGRAPHS

Pattern Series – Sea Lions! It is so very satisfying to spend time drawing sea lions from my photos. This is truly drawing from my heart.
