Botanic art and illustration

Even if your garden is put to bed after the growing season, you can find delight in botanical illustrations. Part science and part art, botanical illustrations provide painstakingly detailed looks at fruits, flowers, vegetables, trees–any member of the plant kingdom.
One of the most rewarding aspects of botanical illustrations is that they can provide us with a look at plants from seed to blossom to flower to fruit–all in one image.
Whether you’re interested in pursuing botanical illustration or simply want a close-up appreciation of plants, have a look at my article published in The Denver Post. You’ll find a number of examples of artfully rendered botanical illustrations.
