More strange life-forms happening here, as this series of made-up studies of the botanical world continues to develop in Botanical Specimen no.7. Why, these look like specimens you might see under the microscope...branching life-forms with bits of celluar structures floating freely in blues, greens and golds, captured on a slide and recorded on this page for endless viewing pleasure. Of course, these drawings are quite out of my imagination! I find nature's structures fascinating and use them as inspiration, never quite working directly from them.

This drawing is made with pencil and water soluble crayon on Japanese paper, which is then dipped in beeswax. I've attached the page to a more sturdy sheet of handmade paper through the stitches around the specimen forms, as well as the beads in the top corners and the stretch of three beads holding down that little patch of paper, which appears to be some sort of signature or notation. More mysteries from the studio!

Artwork measures approximately 10"h x 8"w and will come to you carefully packaged and ready for you to frame or display as desired. The beeswax makes the piece delicate, so be sure to keep it out of the hot summer sun and other sources of direcct heat!

Thank you so much for browsing MissouriBendStudio...enjoy!
