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 was combined with the scientifically accurate illustrations 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 painted on a blank background or in situ. If an artist, like I sometimes do, includes something like a bird or vase in the background, these additions may change the reference to the painting from botanical art to non-traditional botanical art. Images of these non-traditional botanical art paintings appear on the face of each of these note cards.
