Artist's description:

These are milkweed seeds that have escaped their pods and are preparing to take flight! I painted the wispiest parts of the "parachutes" with white gouache, which I rarely use because I'm an old-school transparent watercolor loyalist. But sometimes the only thing that makes sense is a little opaque white on a watercolor. I was fascinated with these pods when I was a child, and I still am.
