Pattern #215

I found this lovely flower on my walk back from swimming yesterday. I loved the way it was decaying and had lost one leaf. It made it more interesting to draw. When I lived in Florida nothing gave me more pleasure than drawing dead and dying banana leaves. They really get interesting when they are past their prime.

So I made this pattern from the drawing. I am still working on the colors. When you make patterns in Illustrator it is easy to change the colors. In photoshop it is not that easy.

This weekend I worked on getting my logo/header to match all my other web sites. Every one of them had a different look. Not good. So now I think they have a more cohesive look.

I just love making patterns so much. There seems to be no end in sight and I am grateful for that!

What a lovely pattern the flower has made I think you are right fading flowers and leaves are often quite beautiful to sketch!
