JOSHUA TREE IN FULL BLOOM

SUMMER BRINGS BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS ON THE JOSHUA TREE AT LA JOLLA COVE.  The blooms are high up & many visitors walk right underneath them never even seeing them.  The waxy flowers with a tinge of green in the center on a gigantic flower stalk are stunning.  Take a moment to enjoy the beauty around us.

COLLAGE POPPY FLOWER GREETING CARD

Collage birthday card for a friend who loves red poppies! The poppy flower heads were painted on rice paper using Japanese brush painting technique.  The flower stems & leaves, the earth & the butterfly/lion are handmade papers made in India.  The strips of paper on the side are one of my old Japanese brush paintings cut up.  The envelope matches the Poppy flower theme!
