The Nature of Life

Another mixed media piece for the March theme of The Sketchbook Challenge, "Spilling Over".
Life, symbolized by nature and its cycles, is what was in my head as I was finishing this.
The vines in this piece, like "What a Tangled Web we Weave..." from a couple of days ago, were inspired by a post by Violette Clark for her frog series in which she gave a link to a particular Zendoodle method (it goes by various names, some of which are trademarked) of making the initial doodle, and from Carol Sloan I borrowed the technique of adding a squiggly line next to the initial one, but without her "zippered" effect. If you follow the links you will see what I mean.
