2018, 6 3/8 x 6 3/4 inches, colored pencils, graphite pencils and pastels. In this lower left detail from ‘Physostegia - Insect Visitors’, overlapping shapes of stems, leaves and flower buds describe the plant and form a background pattern. Transparency and outlined white flower stems suggest fading shapes and fleeting seasonal changes. The illustrated species of pollinator beetles use Physostegia extensively for mating purposes and food. The pollinator beetles, species unknown, are drawn mating and roaming the pattern of leaves and stems to continuously search for the opposite sex.
