ooh this lovely in it's detail Amy..
I do so love pen and ink...
it has such a unique quality ...
this drawing reminds me of the illustrations you see in botany books....
this would make a great series of cards too!!!

Thank you Kim..I did this in a Scientific Illustration class I took @ Berkeley University in California. I did the original in pencil and had to translate it to pen and ink...VERY HARD...my teacher made me start the pen and ink over many times...he was a REALLY good teacher!

Very unique pen and ink Amy...I always enlarge the pieces to see the detail and this one is simply amazing!!!

I agree with Kim this would make a striking series of cards!!

It seems unanimous... Ladies...I'll have to give it a whirl and see how it reproduces...I have a feeling that I'll have to shoot it again for re-pro and make it a little smaller, because the photos come out a little bigger on the gadget that I use...if that makes any sense...lol...ahhh, great minds think alike!!!
