|Artist: Nita Leger Casey|
A couple of weeks ago, my MIL Darlene, gave me a whole bunch of unused greeting cards. Last week, I scanned one showing a young woman with a balloon, and got the idea to share these cards as a regular feature, called "Just a Note". That way, we can see some neat art, and learn more about the artist.
The picture above, is the one that I will be using each week and it is also on the sidebar with links underneath. I added color to the frame and some vignette to it. The artist is Nita Leger Casey, and she has a blog featuring her work, here.
This week, I am featuring these botanical paintings by Pierre Jospeph Redouse. First published in France in 1827 in a book named Chiox des Plus Belies Fleurs, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation chose some of Redouse's paintings for fundraising purposes. They are quite beautiful.
