I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021

Gross Flower? Is that possible?

I was reading about the Corpse Flower last night. I had never heard of them till then. Have you seen or heard of these? They are huge! They can grow up to 6 feet tall. The record high is 9 feet. They only bloom for 2 or so days and every 2 - 3 years and sometimes even longer between times. When they open up they smell like a dead body and they attract insects like flies and beetles to pollinate them. When one bloomed in a Botanical Garden in California, they said that normally they get about 50 or so visitors to the garden in a few days - but when this bloomed they had over 5,000. I am pretty sure that is what the number was. There seem to be different looks for these flowers so you can just do an image search for them if you are really interested. I am going to read a bit more about them too. Very interesting flower. Gross.. But interesting. :)
