This is Kercheval, which is in Grosse Pointe Farms, but can be walked to from Detroit in 20 minutes, so I figured fair game--since I do in fact walk there.
Woodward Ave, or M-1, in Detroit, was the first concrete highway anywhere. This is coming around as a forward.
And here is my newest painting:
This week's WeekWord, hosted by Joye, is Fugacious, which means fleeting. Because it is spring, and I am so eager for spring wildflowers, I painted this picture of a Bloodroot. Flowers, like people, like stars, are ephemeral. But what is even more ephemeral are the two sepals on the bloodroot bud. The are deciduous, and fall off as soon at the flower opens. Once it is opened, it has only petals, and when it closes again in rain or darkness, there are no fugacious sepals left.
I did this in Artrage on my iPad. I did it fairly hastily (for me), brand new for the challenge, and without any constant reference materials, though I did peek occasionally at googly searched fleurs. Click image to view slightly larger.
