The theme for this week's photohunt is original. I snapped the photo below in the NC Botanical Gardens on Thursday. The NCBG has an art show between September and November with original art by North Carolina artists scattered throughout the garden.
I decided to create an original work of art for the theme this week. I'm going to end with my original creation but first an original charcoal drawing my father did of me in 1973 when I was 16. I like the way the light caught my camera in the glass when I photographed the old charcoal of me.
For the original work of art which I created for the photohunt, I decided on mixed media. First I purchased some new art supplies for the occasion.
Then I gathered some dried plant materials from my fall garden and went at it.
There you have it. Art in the garden followed by two generations of artists. Don't you think my father would be proud of me?
