I loved making art this weekend at the National Public Gardens Celebration at the mobilebotanicalgardens. The wonderful team of volunteers made it all possible! Check out the many faces of Platanus occidentalis, Eastern Sycamore, I was ablento reveal thanks to their clever monoprint activity. #drawmbg #npgd #publicgardens #horticulture #botany #mbgscene #mbgscene1 #platanusoccidentalis #easternsycamore #easternplaintree #nature #natureart #monoprints #nationalpublicgardensday sday ...
