Everything Except Work: 5

The last in this collection of outpourings of my distracted art.

I'm particularly proud of this, a decorative border for my father's sixtieth birthday card.

I love arts-and-crafts decorative borders, bursting with finely-drawn leaves, fruit and flowers, stemming from fancifully smooth curving branches and tendrils.

This interpretation of that... idiom... is based on some of the flora of Bangladesh: bananas, palms, mangos and papayas.

The process involved quite a bit of research and experimentation, making me wonder why I'm not submitting it for college. Here, too, is a view of my desk, at its most artistic and craftsmanlike.
