|"Great piece of turf study of weeds"Albrect Durer|
"I'm glad you sent the pictures from that blog. The picture, that I have not seen of the bird's wing, is out standing. He was a great artist and I think he was around 500 years ago. So advanced. I have studied him for my 'weeds' for years."

I've never known another artist to do weeds so wonderfully as Mr. Jones... Who sees the beauty in a weed, but Carroll Jones III, and Albrecht Durer ?

The beautiful blog he was referring to was this one: http://botanicalsketches.blogspot.ie/2014/03/wings.html
Please give it a visit. shevaun does a wonderful job. It is her sketchbook, and it is so interesting how she makes a science of art. Next to Jones, I find her studies the most enlightening of all botanical artists.
