Just so you know, the painting by Jessie Arms Botke you titled in your post as "Demoiselle Cranes and Lotus", the cranes actually aren't Demoiselle Cranes, Demoiselle Cranes have black heads and necks, but these cranes have red heads and white necks, and I am fairly sure they're Indian Sarus Cranes. I know several websites label them as Demoiselle Cranes, but I think it's from a feedback loop kind of thing because it's just not accurate. Googling both species will show what I'm talking about.

Thank you for pointing me at it. But I think I’ll continue naming the painting like this. I alway tend to give the painting the title from where I got it from. And that’s never an online title, because that’s not where I’m getting it from. That’s why titles are very often shown in the original language.
So I hope you don’t mind…
