These drawings/little paintings were done inside and around the gîte (rental house) at Chateau-Chervix, France. I kept myself occupied in the early mornings, drinking my coffee and drawing, while listening to the birds singing outside - then "Minette", the cat that owns the rental house, would come inside to see what I was doing and to ask for her "petit déjeuner" (breakfast). :o)
I became so intrigued by the Nigella flowers and seed pods, that I kept sketching or painting them all the time ... even on scraps of paper. I love the "other worldly" quality of both the flowers and the pods. Nigella is also commonly called "Love in the Mist". I'm going to try to grow some in our garden in Holland.
