WEEKLY ART PROJECT #29;WATTLE
I sit here typing, wearing my red poppy earrings. Many people are wearing red poppies today, it's a symbol of remembrance. Symbols are important, and as it happens...it's a symbol that I have used as my muse for this week's Art Project; the flower symbol of Australia, the Golden Wattle.
I liked the idea of incorporating the long slender leaves, the patterning on the bud & a single blossom.
I could have left it there & been reasonably happy. However, I took it a little further.
Mission accomplished for this week anyway!
