Flora-Torosaurus About the Design
Lisa Rasmussen: "One of my favorite landmarks in Pittsburgh is Phipps Conservatory. Many of my clients are partial to my watercolors of flowers. I go there quite often to take photos of what's blooming and I work from Sold!those.

"Phipps is unique to Pittsburgh. There is a whole different feeling when you walk in. It is beautiful and peaceful there just like we would like our world to be. In this time or war and terrorists, I think it is very important and comforting to know that there is still beauty in the world and we can always find it right here in Pittsburgh."
