Exotica


This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge where the theme is "Exotic'. To me exotic is a collaboration of color, pattern, texture and of course flora and fauna. Scenes from far away places that depict a different way of life and people of different cultures and philosophies open our eyes to all that is amazing and inspirational. Imagery credits go to Dover, Christine Rennee and background is my own from vintage botanical prints.
