Leaves on Leather © Lynn Wiles 2021
I’ve been collecting specimens for my sketchbook and the honey locust leaves and spines fell upon my iPad cover. Wondering how long it will take to fully feel the relief of a new president and vice president after four long awful years.

Grass Attack © Lynn Wiles 2021
Forgetting that I am allergic to grass, I thought I would bring some of my neighbor’s ornamental grass inside for macros. After taking a few photos, I realized this was a very bad idea.

The sun shining on my African violet, while humming My Girl by the Temptations. The hairs help regulate temperatures and ward off unwanted critters.

Climbing Sideways © Lynn Wiles 2021
The past 10 months have been a time filled with groundhog days and feeling like one is climbing sideways.

After the shocking events of yesterday, I thought we could all use a little simplicity, mystery and nature today. I am deeply ashamed of this country.

A New Year © Lynn Wiles 2021
And things have not become magically better. I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, but did decide about a month ago to start collecting random bits of nature and start a sketchbook with 15 minutes of drawing or painting a day. And in the last week, I have started exploring the macro capabilities of my newish camera. The in focus part of this lichen is less than 5 mm and I thought I could draw this life-size. Haha. Since we are all going to be stuck at home for the time being, wishing you all a Happy New and Creative Year. Even if it means bringing the outdoors inside.
