Hello, Kitten & Dawgs! I’m delighted you joined me for the next A2Z alphabet prompt with art sketching through the alphabet and today’s letter “I”.
Long ago, we had the best next door neighbor. When we moved into this house, Joe, was a single man and very personable. He was a gentle soul, warm, kind, and friendly to a fault. Along the front bank of his house, he planted dozens of purple iris plants. In the spring when they bloomed they stood majestically tall but it’s their sweet perfume I remember the most filling my nostrils while watching our small girls play on their swing set.
It’s been many years now since Joe who eventually married and moved to the other end of the city. The new homeowners apparently didn’t share a love for irises and dug them up, tossing them away. Had I known what they were going to do, I would have requested some of the bulbs for transplant to our yard. I miss the scent and the memories associated with the iris.
This sketch would look nice as a watercolor design which I hope to try. Perhaps, I’ll use it as this year’s Mother’s Day card creation.
I hope my contribution in this challenge encourages you to stop putting off the pursuit of your own passions, fear of failure is not an option. My advice is, just do it! Maybe, you’ll be surprised. I know I was! 🙂
Ignite my inner flame with your “I” inspirations! Any inkling? Impress upon me in comments your ideas and if I use ’em then I’ll inform others of your ingeniousness!
I’m heading off to link up with other fellow AtoZers and you’re invited to come along. I’ll see you on tomorrow for the next installment of Art Sketching through the Alphabet!
