Lady Slippers

Flowers like these call out for me to encourage others to enjoy them and to help preserve them for my grandchildren and for their grandchildren. So I paint plants in order to create a new environmental picture of nature. Then we can envision plants as part of a complex system with insects, birds and other animals.

These are thriving along an inland lake in northern Wisconsin. Their environmental needs are met here. I appreciate my friends helping me to draw and photograph these special moccasin plants.
