Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I embraced it for the first time this year making the U.S. Botanic Garden my daily destination and sketching plants that remind me of the prompts on the Inktober 2017 list. The USBG staff was extremely welcoming and posted a nice note on their Facebook page. They also invited me to do a public lecture about the project which was very well received by all attendants. See a sample of the 31 drawing set on the Portfolio page.
