I can't believe I am already at the end of my flower faces series. I have to admit I am tempted to do another month of flower faces because it has been so much fun. But I already have something else in mind, so my series for June will be something a bit different from this. New medium, new surface, new subject. Exciting.
Creating something every day and posting it is certainly a challenge. But a good one. After the first month, I still highly recommend it. Even though my task of creating one flower face in pen and mostly watercolour is a relatively small one, it has still been tricky to fit it in some days.
And I think that is rather the point. Even a comparatively small task is easily squashed out of the day by things that seem urgent. Having promised myself (and you!) that I would post every day has helped me remember that while there are other urgent tasks in my day, this one is still important to me. It deserves its space.
So my project of monthly series continues.
In closing off the last of the flower face posts for this series I would like to share seven of my fave flower quotations. Which is your favourite?
