Each Mini Original drawing starts among the pages of Erica's sketchbook as a quick graphite drawing. From there each page of paper is hand torn to create the perfect size paper for each drawing. To add a little extra fun to each drawing small pools of watercolor are added to the paper forming fun shapes that are unique to each piece. The sketches are then transferred and hand drawn in graphite to creating a series of original drawings that are similar but each have their own individual personality.
The Cosmos flower is October's designated Birth Flower. The Cosmos originated in Mexico, where they were cultivated in mission gardens. There are roughly 20 different types of cosmos and have a wide range of color and shades. They were named after the Greek word for "order" because of their evenly spread flower petals. The flower is most often associated with symbolizing Order and Harmony.
