Day 24 - Poinsettia

Another entry for my sketch a day project. This time it is a small poinsettia left over from Christmas.

I always feel bad for my Christmas poinsettias because I have a really hard time keeping them alive. It seems I either over water them or under water them. Plus I don't think they like the cool overnight temperatures that we like for sleeping. But so far this little one seems to be doing okay. Maybe it will beat the odds.

really nice lines here :)

Thank you Jennifer! I'm really trying to be more expressive with my mark making. For some reason I find that goal easier to accomplish when I use a pen than when I use pencil. It seems counter-intuitive, but it's true.
