Who Knew Iowa Was So Wild?

My next State Flower is the Iowa Rosa Arkansana, or the Wild Rose. Of course, what other time was as wild as the roaring twenties, when Art Deco, my new favorite design style, was so well established. That’s not really what I was thinking when I drew this doodle, I just wanted to add some cool geometrical elements to my next piece. I don’t like the dark turquoise color, but other than that, I’m quite pleased with the concept of this doodle.

I love my new Prismacolor markers! They made doing the actual flowers very easy. I must confess, I did draw this in pencil first befome completing it in ink.

If you need to have a little bit of joy in your life, I give you this video of my cat Tony and our kitten Streaky. For the full experience, turn your volume all the way up to hear the purring.
