These illustrations are from the book my mother gave me for my birthday last week. It is called "The Complete Guide to Indoor Plants" and is written by Eigil Kiaer. The illustrations are by Ellen Backe. The book was published in Denmark. It is amazingly beautiful.
I have been thinking of making some soft sculpture flowers and plants. These leaves are a part of that experiment.
I just finished a very busy week of work, work, work. It feels good to be back here making a post.
My mother tucked this photo under the ribbon of my birthday gift. It shows me cutting my cake on the occasion of my 5th birthday (in 1971!). Don't you love my graphic red, white, and blue dress? And the pig tails? I'll bet I had just received that wrist watch as a gift. That is my lovely 6-year-old sister looking on. Where has the time gone? My kids are older than this now.
