zoo plants

I love finding interesting plants while out and about. This week while at the zoo I came across this one. The red and green contrast caught my eye as well as the horizontal lines in the leaves.

nature inspired no. 4

This is one of my absolute favorite patterns in nature.
I found the little guy on left hiding behind a tree stump and was happy to take his picture. To the right of him are two interpretations of his simple shape.
The middle image is of a canvas piece titled "Leaves 2" created by Katja Ollendorff. View more of her work here. The leaf tea towel on the far right is for sale at elisabeth bentz's shop (she's got lots of other color combos to choose from!).

pretty in purple

I love taking walks in Berkeley because I always capture so many interesting plants. Today was no exception. Out of the many photos I took I realized there was a common theme, purple! Purples are currently in bloom, here's a little sample.
