Revisiting 'Ways of Seeing'

In March I posted on the varying ways we see the world. Lovers of the visual realm, literature and the arts in general get to appreciate this continually as we investigate new discoveries and revisit the old. Some of us are very eclectic in out tastes...whereas other may be more focused on a particular theme, style, genre or mood.

I wanted to make a link here to that March post for its broad ranging approaches to the botanical world demonstrated by diverse artists....most found at one source.

Tonight I also posted a story on Christchurch, New Zealand which contained  works from a various artists -all New Zealand artists past and present - one working with native plants as a subject for beautiful large pastel drawings. Click here to see that post.
