A Year of Nature and French


A Year of Nature and French grew from two desires: my wish to learn more of the lovely French language, and my joy in exploring the natural world around me.

I made a commitment to combine these pleasures by creating a drawing a day of something I observed, and learning the French word for what I saw or experienced.

My loose translations were derived from common and scientific names of plants, animals, insects and birds, as well as feelings evoked from personal observations.

I am currently seeking a publisher for a book which will include all 365 illustrations.

These images are an examples of individual drawings from various months of the year.
