Drawing the Interconnectivity of Life

Everflowing 22.75x18” Graphite with iridescent gold acrylic and Prismacolor pencil on Stonehenge paper.

Now that fall's sting has removed the leaves from a tall maple down the block, I've been able to watch the slow coming apart of a large bald faced hornet's nest woven into its branches. The multiple skins of exposed hornet paper inspired the layered texture on the right side of this drawing. The newest in a series of drawings created around a theme of the interconnected nature of life.
