Flock of Colors: Sails, 16 x 20'', $130

Plants are filled with vessels--

seen and unseen--

that allow them to survive. 

A veined leaf reveals this structure,

as does a transparent stem. 

Plants also produce and distribute vessels; what are flowers and fruits but containers for seed-making and dispersal?

What is a seed but a vessel of life?
