Artist Lisa Chernyavska has created the real-size painting of Trifolium pratense, also known as Red Clover. This plant is native to Europe, Western Asia and northwest Africa and can grow up to 80 cm tall. It is known to be widely used in alternative medicine.

 

Larisa Chaika painted Anemóne sylvéstris, grown in her own garden. Wood Anemone is very delicate and elegant flower which blossoms in spring. It is native to meadows and dry deciduous woodlands of central and western Europe, including Ukraine. Due to its ability to grow quickly, anemone can be seen more often in flowerbeds in gardens and parks, rather than in forests.
