|“Where the Red Fern Grows” by GG Burns|
|Ferns growing wild in my back yard|
A few days ago, I learned that of my 3 collages, the “Where the Red Fern Grows”, was the only one selected for the art exhibit at the Living Arts and Science Center. I therefore decided to frame it in a small black frame.
See my art and 28 other Botanical works, from: April 19 – May 25, 2013
“Lunaria, The Giving Plant”, by GG Burns
About 10 years ago, I purchased a small package of Lunaria seed and planted them in one spot. Now each spring, these purple blooms can be found all over my garden, even growing in the grass. Our yard is mostly hard clay, so I call this plant heat, drought-tolerant and horrible soil resistant.

|“Life of a Red Maple” by GG Burns|
This piece illustrates the metamorphosis of a maple leaf, from their 'whirlybird' seedlings, to a real dried leaf as it looks in the early spring -- to an illustration of how it appears after if falls to the earth, at the end of the growing season. The red maple is a member of the maple family Aceraceae and is one of the most widely distributed trees in eastern North America.
Those who visit the exhibit, will view flora and fauna as depicted by Kentucky artists who find unique beauty and characteristics in roots, seeds, flowers and foliage, and we will identify the different ways that artists depict the structure and anatomy of plants through the artistry of their photographs, paintings, drawings, and more.
