"Croton Mania" Original Artwork By Mary Ann Stafford Description
I'm pretty much captivated by closeups of plants that seem to be abstracted in design. The brilliant yellows, greens, and reds of my croton plant appealed to me, so I tried it in colored pencil with a neutral background.About the artist:Nature is my favorite subject - either in painting or drawing. My strongest design element is shape - both positive and negative. That is one reason why I love to depict trees in any season, especially bare trees that reach their limbs up to the sky leaving spaces through which the sky peeks through. There is a certain human aspect in a tree shaped by its environment. Variations in line, hue, and value also mark my work. My personality is calm and steady, and it always shows up in my art.
