Artwork Description: Spanish Moss is a hallmark of coastal Georgia, but this type of Moss grows more in Florida. Its delicate flowers burst forth in discrete energy and the elegantly-curling leaves are a delight. I drew this silverpoint on a tinted ground to echo the delicate colour of the Spanish Moss, and then used white gouache for the highlights. This drawing has been selected for display in an invitational silverpoint exhibition and has also won "Best of Show" in an on-line juried show, so evidently other people respond to the Moss' ebulliance. The drawing's shimmer from the silver is not conveyed in a digital image, alas.
