  1. Thank you for showing these as a feature! I fiddle around with art some, and my current project is drawing a simple shell from four different perspectives, and then painting the drawings with water color. Your nature illustrations helped inspire the idea.

    • Hi Nancy, I’m so glad to hear it!! There is so much spectacular old illustration out there that we forget about because of our new fancy photography, but it has a special place in my heart. This one has been one of my favorite for years and I sure wish I could find the book it came from!

      Good luck with your painting! :)

  2. Very Cool. It seems like it’s probably from a book, but when I worked for the Forest Service I had a very similar style poster hanging on my wall. I may still have a copy, I should go look for that.

    • Yes I agree, it is very reminiscent of those posters that I covet so much. If you find the copy, I’d love to see a photo of it!! :) Thanks for writing!
