Morning Glory Faery - Sunday Scans
She looks a little pensive--Winter has lasted all too long. This drawing is another of my favorites, echoing the rich colors of the Morning Glory flower.
Some of my best childhood memories are embellished with the velvety purple flowers of Morning Glories. Turned upside down, they became beautiful maidens who danced along the tops of the grape vines near my grandmother's house.
It was always a mystery to watch them tightly closing against the night, only to burst into gorgeous flowering in the warm morning sunshine.
