    CP Art

    Today at work I found some books on a table in an office. I picked up one of the and I opened it to a random page. Here is the pic I saw.






    You can see a close up of this at http://isabellakirkland.com/descendant.htm


    The first thing that caught my eye was the sarracenia . It's a Sarracenia rubra jonesii.

    Then I saw the Nepenthe, then the Byblis and VFT. I spent about 20 mins looking at this pic.

    When I got home I researched Isabella Kirkland and I found this painting is one of a series, an awesome series. You can take a look at the others in the series at

    This is great! What a great way to showcase these things. And in the beauty of a pictures itself, a great argument for conservation. Thanks for sharing.
    that makes no logic

    lol You LIKED artwork. That makes you appreciative of fine art which means you are a renaissance man. A renaissance man who wrecks trains and gets in trouble all the time. lol

    Just because I like one painting does not mean I like art.

    You liked her whole series. And its art. And you like it. Therefore you like art.

    Besides...you make it sound like liking art is a bad thing. What about this ART?
