Great banner Casey!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I can't explaine it but dead pondlife fascinates me.
These lily pads and occasional leaves is just great.
I painted similar image 10 years ago.

Thank you @crawgarden, @plantmanager, @ge1836!

And thank you everyone for the thumbs up!!

Jo Ann, I LOVE your watercolor! It's beautiful!!! I have a "morte in the garden" fascination too. I started a folder of images a few years back, but didn't keep up with it. I still take pics, but they're buried in various folders. I'm sure you're familiar with Karl Blossfeldt. Jim Dine and Ellsworth Kelly also have wonderful collections of plant drawings.

Thank you for the inspiration this morning! Great way to start the day. Smiling

You and me both! I grew up in Houston, and our last apartment was two blocks from The Menil. They had an amazing collection of Jim Dine's. We literally went every week, to look at art and to hang out at the bookstore. His drawings were part of the group of artists I admired, along with Giacometti, Jasper Johns, Joseph Cornell, Robert Rauschenberg, Magritte, Agnes Martin... so many! When I moved to Charlotte, I worked for an arts organization for a number of years. My first week I was handed a Rolodex full of prominent artists that I needed to call. I was in awe. I asked, "Do you know Jim Dine too?" The response? Yes, but sometimes it's best not to meet your heroes. Ah, but I still love his work.

You've opened up another angle in viewing the beauty of plants, even to the end of it's season. And all those great artists you've listed.....have to check all of them out. Thank you Casey and Jo Ann. We just keep on learning and learning.
