Materials/Techniques: I drew this zinnia in my yard while the bees buzzed around on a warm late summer day. I hope you feel that warmth when you look at it. I colored it with Inktense pencils and a little water. It is heavily free motion quilted. I used rayon and metallic and silver threads. It is thread signed. I noticed one day when I had it pinned to a board, it was upright and the light was coming down on it, that the lights and darks really popped.

Artist Statement: This zinnia is called State Fair. It is very large, sturdy and bright in color. What's not to like? They are also pretty easy to grow. Just as always I say they are my favorites. How many favorites do I have now?
