IF - Propagate

 "Propagating"
graphite pencil, digital  |  2010

After seeing a few other artists use plant life in their IF this week, it got me thinking.  I didn't really know how I wanted to translate this word....but I thought of what my mom has done and always will do with her plants.  She cuts them back and re-pots the clippings, most of the time.  Two...no....maybe three or four of my houseplants are clippings off of my mom's plants.  Now I'm doing the same with mine.  It's a beautiful way to share with friends too!  All around good stuff.

Btw, I miss spring...I don't want to paint snow any more.

I also painted this digitally, with some watercolor photoshop brushes.  Eh, still prefer my good ol' paint brush, but not too displeased with this either.  I think it works with the sketch very well.  :)  Probably will use it again.
