In the Xerophyllic Room at the Conservatory


There are lots of wonderful cacti and other xerophyllic plants in the desert room at the Conservatory on Belle Isle.


These are very quick sketches in a Moleskine that was returned from circulating among 12 other artists in my second moleskine group. I am filling in the blank pages.

The one on the left was designed as a companion piece to one done by AURORA FOX. I like hers better.

The xerophyllic room is making me xenophenic and schizophrenic, or... never mind... ;-)

Lovely shot, but I like your drawings better!
