Adenium Arabicum

Adendium arabicum
I busted out my old Prismacolor pencils today to do a little drawing of a plant featured in an article called "Desert Beauties" in the October issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. I immediately fell in love with it. I must find out more about this caudiciform and be on the lookout for one to add to my collection.
And maybe make a hand carved stamp too.

I had one of those plants but didn't have luck keeping it alive. The common name that I know for it is desert rose.

I love those -- the article says they're easy to come by but I've only ever seen them in a succulent nursery in Berkeley and they're a little pricey for me.

Beautiful drawing, will you be selling a print?

Lovely, as always. What an unusual plant -- right out of a Dr. Seuss book! Good luck on your quest...

I just wanted to say thank you for your tutorials and inspiration. I carved my first (first worth keeping that is) stamp this weekend. It wasn't difficult and I love it. Thank you!

Love prismacolours. Love how you with such easyness can turn a photo into a drawing. You are blessed with talent.

I've got one of these, or almost (the classification is complicated, see the wikipedia page!)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adenium In South Africa where I live we call them impala lilies. Mine grows beautifully in a pot in the hottest, sunniest, most dreadfully heat-trap-like corner of the patio. I hope you get one; the flowers are like nothing else!

Lovely pencil work! I was listening to BBC Radio 4 today and there was an article on an English lady, Marianne North, a botanical artist in Victorian times. I thought of your work and wondered if you might be interested in her style. I looked up Kew Gardens London site about her gallery: http://www.kew.org/mng/gallery/356.html

Hope its of use to you!
