Illustration Friday: Garden...

This is my submission for this week's Illustration Friday's theme: Garden. It's a fairly quick one, but I wanted to get back in the swing of making new pieces for each week's challenge. I've titled it, "In Brooklyn's Garden of Earthly Delights." It's a play on the title of Bosch's painting. With this piece, I've tried to incorporate a lot of different techniques - bridging different modes that I've been working in. I also wanted to provoke questions of various layers of reality (what's real, what's not) and to explore the metaphor of "the garden."

You've created a very harmonious composition that has a lot of great color and movement. I especially like the contrast of the ink on vellum against the reds and greens,

Thanks so much for all your comments! In this time where I'm sort of in an editing phase, every little thing counts. Thanks again!
