nature’s surprises

...and even some of man’s

available as Blank Note Cards on request


Whether an orchid’s perfect ruff, the texture of an old tree’s bark,

a very likely deadly

yet alluring mushroom, a caterpillar in formal dress, the devastating stare from a proud parrot’s face, a “smurf” reaching out from within a bloom, or even a “head” resting on cloud pillows, there is a lesson in shading or in color theory or even in dance for the taking, as Nature astonishes us with an endless, magical array of surprises.
