I wasn't quite sure where to put this, so I am putting it here.

This is my 2010 Crop Art piece for the Minnesota State Fair. I won first place in my category. She is made from 100% Minnesota Native Seeds. Peas, Sunflower, Safflower, Clover, Wheat, Rape Seed, Broomcorn (Red & Black) & probably a few more.



Here's my friend checking it out.



And a progress pic.



And my piece from last year.

Well,... I just think that is so,..... unique, nifty, spectacular.  Pretty neat to see your entry from last year too.  The whole idea is so intriging, and it seems you must have been planning the 2010 entry since your last one.  What a great idea.  This is rocked for sure!

oh god that is the most awesome use of seeds I have seen, besides growing them.

I really love the way you have given the image texture, it comes to life.

You skill is awesome.

What a fabulous way to think outside the box.
