ACEO - Ferns 1-3

A few years ago I transplanted a number of trilliums, wild geraniums, Canada violets, a Jack in the pulpit and a couple of ferns to create a wildflower garden at the front of the property.

The wildflowers last such a short time, but the ferns are there until the frost kills them off for the winter. They are such a lovely, delicate looking plant that I enjoy seeing each year.

I did these three quick sketches of the ferns and may develop them into larger paintings later.
