Formality Isn't Perfect

Over the past several years, I’ve been drawing pictures of flowers in the garden from photographs I take of them in my art journals. I’ve completed 2 journals and I’m 3/4 complete on my third. Some of my inspiration comes from reading an inspirational article from someone else. I then take those words and draw a picture of how it made me feel or what came to my mind's eye when I read those words.I’m also a quote person, I just adore a good inspirational quote. Sometimes the words come to me for my own such as this image from my current art journal.

This drawing is from a photograph I took of this yellow rose enjoying the sunshine in the garden. Even with the sometimes imperfect leaves and thorny attitude the rose isn’t perfect. We are use to the beauty and formality a rose carries, the color, smell, the meaning, all enabling us to overlook any blemishes giving the illusion of perfection.
