Some sketches of plants in my yard
by Joe MacGown

Our house and property is located in the Black Belt Prairie region, which runs through parts of both Mississippi and Alabama. The Black Belt is host to a wide number of plant species, many of which are wildflowers. Occasionally, I feel the urge to draw or paint some of these wildflowers and a few of those pictures are listed below. Just click on the thumbnails to view larger versions of the sketches.
