EDM Challenge #141: Something with Bristles

It has been awhile since last I posted...continuing with the color exploration.
In Georgia, pine trees are ubiquitous; so, to draw pine bristles with a couple of pine cones amidst them is to capture the everyday of this part of the world.

This is great! I must say I do like all your drawings, but a bit of colour really does it for me. This one is special.

I love this piece. I have a real fondness for pines and the mountains, etc...a beautiful drawing!

And, thanks for "popping" in for a visit...Yes, that is a real cactus...I loved the geometry and the shape of it form the get-go...the flowers usually bloom in a ring...So glad you liked...and thanks for the lovely comment! :)
