Green Foxtail
(Setaria viridis of the Family: Poaceae, Grass)

16″ × 24″ Ink on heavy weight illustration paper.

This is the first of two commissioned drawings I created for a home staging project I worked on. They are drawings of weeds, I like to think of them as “weed chic”. It was part of a bold statement I was making in the master bedroom suite I was designing. I wanted to take something very ordinary and considered lowly and make it designer. I honestly find weeds very attractive, I think there is a real understated beauty in them.

Here’s a few shots of them in the room….

Enjoy!

    Great job Carrie, one persons weed is anothers beautiful plant.

    A weed in a general sense is a plant that is considered by the user of the term to be a nuisance, and normally applied to unwanted plants in human-made settings such as gardens, lawns or agricultural areas, but also in parks, woods and other natural areas

  • Thanks Troy!!!! Yes exaaactly…I have just always found them very interesting and naturally beautiful. A nuisance no more..haha!

    Beautiful Carrie! ‘Weed’ is merely a word and does not mean a plant is not beautiful. :o)

  • Thank you! Yes you’re right, and they are so unassuming and have a simple beauty to me. Where I live there is an area where wild dill has grown and it is twice my height. It is stunning to me. Anyway…thanks again for your comment!
