I happened to be perusing my local consignment shop the other day and came across this wonderful, rather beat-up book called "Art Forms in Nature." It is full of lithograph plates of the most elegant, elaborate sea creatures and botanical forms. This has so inspired me, I will surely be using it as a reference in creating more black and white paintings. I have been looking for a way to evolve my botanicals and here it is! Look for my new work soon.
