I just finished this painting today.  I went on Wikipedia to see if there was anything interesting I could mention on my blog about this flower and…

‘In January 2016, NASA announced that a zinnia which had blossomed on the International Space Station was the first flower ever grown outside the Earth’s biosphere. This claim was quickly refuted by news media.’  [Wikipedia]

What a coincidence.
