Day 95 - Giant Protea

A while back we had a sketchcrawl at the Old Cactus Garden in Balboa Park. It is behind the Puppet Theater and the Balboa Park Club. There is a huge Protea bush (tree?) there that had a number of flowers on it. I took this picture of one of the flowers. It was at least 7 or 8 inches tall - just amazing in size! All the little spiny parts are so perfectly arranged. They aren't sharp "spines" but I'm not sure what to call them!
Photo, specialty papers, embellishments.
Go make art!
