Sepia Ink Drawing

Sweetgum

This is a Sepia Ink drawing I did many years ago of some Sweetgum ball seed pods.  I used to pick them up when we went on family visits to East Texas to visit my aunt.  She had a lot of different kinds of trees on her land and I would go exploring through the Pine thickets of East Texas and collect specimens.   These sweetgum seed pods are prickly and spiny, with seeds rattling on the inside.  They remind me of the artwork of Bosch or Bruegel or Durer…very medieval looking.
