Making It Your Own

You always hear people saying "Make it your own..."
That means taking something that you see, that you like
using the inspiration from it to draw your own interpretation of it.
Like this tree I drew.

It was inspired by this tree from the latest Papaya catalog.
Not exactly like it but close-
It has the "flavor" of the Papaya (catalog) tree.
I looked for the artist of this piece but couldn't find it in the catalog.
I love the shape of the tree.

So, find something that you love-
a shape, a color, a texture-
and create a piece of art from it.
But, make it your own.

love your interpretation of the tree Carol. What a great idea to use the image in the catalog as a jumping off point. I'm not familiar with the papaya catalog, I think I need to get on their mailing list!

LOVE the tree also. I'm a sucker for all things organic shapes. Enjoying your work!

Great drawing - and you did, indeed, make it your own.
