Hybrid (Snapdragon)


For this week's IF, an example of genetic engineering... I'm planting snapdragons in my garden this week so this was a natural.
Acrylic on a botanical text on canvas, with a bit of digital tweaking, about 4x6.5"

I'm stunned & honored to be Pick of the Week again. Thank you, Penelope, & thanks to all for your kind comments!

Love it! The best Snap Dragons yet! Beautifully done Leah. Your colours and style are very appealing. This would look great on a series of quirky seed packages.
