Fine Art Tuesday



Today I want to call attention to "biological" paintings. All of today's images come from the University of Wisconsin Zoological Museum.

Surely every outdoorsman has seen pictures of large, beautiful char and trout and salmon and pike. Those are trophies and very photogenic. But who know darters and dace and stone-rollers and suckers had such colors?

Other museums and universities produce posters highlighting their own, native wildlife.

I think this genre of art is under-rated.
