I had a wonderful opportunity to exhibit with Oregon Botanical Artists at Cannon Beach Arts Association in a show titled Forest to Garden throughout end of March through beginning of May, 2019. We had 20 participating artists and the plants depicted were plants from the Pacific Northwest Gardens and Forests. I chose to depict three native plants: Evergreen Huckleberry, Salal and Oregon Grape. I used colored pencils on walnut ink stained surface, and added a hummingbird to the huckleberry and salad drawings and a bee to the Oregon Grape drawing. I really enjoyed incorporating hummingbirds and bees as they are important pollinators for our native plants. I hope to carry on the theme and create more drawings of native plants. Visiting people were introduced to botanical art genre which has not been exhibited on the Oregon coast before.
