This is the occupation the very busy and talented Neville Trickett listed on his blogger profile - 'keeping out of trouble'. If only we all kept out of trouble with this much style, wit and industriousness. I followed his eclectic saint verde digest and now have visited the new Saint Verde Chronicles where you can watch a video about his engaging enterprise. The images here are from his Flickr photo sets - the first from his studio and the following ones are of various collections found in different sets listed here.
set: dead botanicals
set: Ernest Haekel
set: Philip Taaffe
The particular sets I chose here are somewhat related in terms of the thread of botanical themes ... however there are another 48(?) sets to look at.. plus the images on the digest contain compelling material as well!
I must mention I have posted on Philip Taaffe in May here and you will find his website and studio viewings if you scroll down to the website listings on the bottom right hand side.
