May Flower Challenge Day Nine • Leaves and Stems, Forgotten Beauties

What is a flower without it's leaves?
What is a flower without a stem?

Sharing stylized leaf studies for day Nine of the May Flower Challenge . 
In a sea of flowers we have the leaves and the stems, often forgotten, always there for support, balance and nourishment.

For the  May Flower Challenge you can post your flower creation, whether it is a doodle, drawing, photograph, collage or painting. This challenge has been started by Lori Moon, fellow blogger, talented photographer and jewelry artisan. Sign up and join in on the flower fun. Can't wait to see what you create as well! Please note: You do NOT have to participate every day. Play along on a specific day each week or only once - whatever inspires you. 
Join the challenge, here, it is going to be fun. 

I love this challenge not because I have a love for drawing, painting and printing flowers but it is an excellent way to build up your motif library. It also keeps your drawing hand in motion and the creative flow becomes a part of your being.

Thank you for stopping by.
