Taking My Time on the Indiana State Flower

The last state MrE lived in and I have not doodle the flower of is Indiana, and so I’ve drawn this doodle dedicated to the Peony. Some people may be unaware that Americans pronounce this particular flower differently depending on where they live. For the most part, I pronounce it PEE-uh-nee, but many southerns pronounce it pee-OH-nee. As for which one is the correct way, the answer is: yes!

I drew the outline of this doodle directly after I drew the Georgia Cherokee Rose drawing, but finished several others before coming back to this one. I didn’t quite have the colors I wanted for the flower itself, but I think the outcome looks tolerable.

As of yet, I still have never done a proper zen doodle, but I did fill in the swirls with some common zen doodley type designs. They certainly do their best to compete with the very pink peony.

I think the next state flowers I’ll tackle are states where I have visited and spent the night. This is mainly western states, but with a few here and there tossed in for good measure. I guess that means I should do the national flowers of Italy and France too.

Critter Time

A while back, we came back from an evening out to find all the kitties sleeping on our bed

We then let Krypto out of her cage, and she too needed to be in on the action
