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.
SAN DIEGO NATIVE WILD FLOWERS – A series of watercolor botanical & landscape illustrations of the wild flowers that bloomed all over the coast after a wonderful winter rainy season that ended a 10-year drought. I spent a few weeks driving up and down the coast photographing all the wild flowers blooming. My latest addition is the blooming Prickly Pear Cactus, but it all started with the clouds of Wild Mustard flowers taking over the bluffs & lagoons. I carry this beauty in my heart.
