Northwest Natives Alphabet Set: N-T
These are the letters N-T of my Northwest Natives Alphabet Set. The full set will be exhibited at G.Gibson Gallery in Seattle. Since the show is in the Pacific Northwest I thought I'd make a tribute to my neck of the woods. Every letter is paired with species that is native to the PNW (Pacific Northwest). Please stop by to see the show if you're in town.

This is probably my favorite crayon from the set. I love how ripples turned out. I carved the turtle on top first, but was unsatisfied with how small it was compared to the whole crayon. I wanted the carved portion to be larger so I added a pond scene with another turtle, lily pads and rippling water.
