"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 ?

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.
