I have found a great artist, Isabella Kirkland who has the most amazing paintings of animals. I love her taxa series. This series has animals and plants that are both native & threatened, or introduced and are invasive. Well done paintings, composition and very naturalistic (other than the fact that the snake would eat the kangaroo rat :) , but its "art") Her other series are phenomenal as well, the detail in the paintings is inspiring.
So take a gander at her website...
learn something about the world outdoors.
