Banksia Leaf Drawing

Ive been down the bush again drawing to my hearts content. Can someone please remind me to do this on a regular basis? I think it is saving my life. I sat in the stillness and listened to the cicadas sing. I love the song of the cicada. Reminds me of happy times in the summer....
This is day 9 of Art Everyday Month! (only day 9? my god, I am already exhausted...i dont think that is the idea of this challenge though!!)

I have never heard of this type leaf or plant before! Very nice drawing! I know what you mean about the cicadas...I loved them so much as a child and the memories they conjure up now when I hear them in summer!

Very good drawing Messy. I doubt if the art is what is making you tired. It is all of those cupcakes and running after Little Messy.
