My style of painting plant life is known as botanical art or illustration.  Sometimes this style is referred to as contemporary botanical art. In ancient times scientifically accurate portrayals of plant life were used for scientific purposes. In modern times, when artistic acumen began to be combined with the scientifically accurate portrayals of plant life, uses of these paintings expanded from just scientific purposes to what is known as works of fine botanical art. Typically, botanical art is portrayed on a blank background or in situ. Images of these botanical art paintings appear on the face of each of these note cards.

The paintings under this tab are painted on a blank background or in situ. Under the next tab, you’ll find non-traditional botanical art, referred to as such because they have some element other than the plant itself in the painting.
