illustration and art

i just signed up for an art class at the callanwolde fine arts center in atlanta and couldn't be more excited. come january, i will be exploring the world of botanical illustration. i really have no idea why i am drawn to creative disciplines that conjure up white haired women in their 80s all sitting in a circle, but such is life. maybe i am really one of those white haired women trapped in a 34 year old body!

i have been eyeing this class for years now and with the munchkins in school and me having the ability to make my own work hours, there is no time like the present. so i am going to dust off my fabulous micron pens and go buy a new drawing pad.

and also pray that the creative gods send someone for me to be chummy with in the class :)


  1. Here's a great blog for scientific illustration:

  2. I've always been old.

    I hope you love your art class. Keep us posted with your new creations.

  3. Not all botanical illustrators are 80-something. Forty and over, yes. Since you're interested in this discipline, may I suggest the educational site, http://artplantaetoday.com? Full disclosure, this is my site. Enjoy your class!

  4. thanks for the link, i will definitely check it out-and i will keep everyone posted on my progress in the class!


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
