Pod

One can find such amazing things on a simple walk. A week or so ago I picked up one of these interesting pods under a tree near the Town Green - I have collected them before but this time as I drew I had to study it closely. I did not capture the complex depth of this pod but it was fun to do while remembering fall of 06 as I look forward to spring 07.

Great sketch Sandy. These seed pods fascinate me so much that I watched one tree several days each week from spring through winter last year to figure out how this thing grows and evolves. I actually sketched the seed pod periodically and painted it so I could record every step.

You did an excellent job on this. I love doing these things also. I really 'see' something when I do a sketch.

Great sketch! Like Shirley, I find the seed pods fascinating, too. Very nicely done.
