Beautiful Images

From the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum

When things get dull, or downright annoying, it is good to take an art break, to simply visit a website that is feast for the eyes.  When I do this, I am not analyzing the images or trying to learn something from them.  I am simply feeding my soul.  I’ve bookmarked several of these sites, so I am ready when I need an aesthetic booster shot.  Among my favorites are the botanical illustration collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Anna Laurent’s Art + Botany blog, and the collection of botanical watercolors and sketches in the Ruskin Library.  All these sites are well worth visiting.
