As you can read from the post title, this is a slightly shamefaced admittance that as a botannical illustrator, ALL of my plants die. I can illustrate the life out of them, just not keep them alive! I guess it just isn't my gift. The problem that this leads to is that I have nothing to draw in the winter. These pictures are of an African Violet that is currently ending its life on my studio table. I was so excited when I got it as a present- I even bought African Violet food! But nothing worked and now it is dying. Sniff. So I'm drawing its slow ending of life.
