#watercolorfragments is a collection of fine art compositions by Kristy Rice.

Kristy combines live floral bits, sculpted paper and brushstrokes on paper to develop richly textured compositions that beautifully fool the eye. Where does fresh floral end and watercolor begin? You decide.

Each composition is photographed to crystallize the moment before the live elements fade. Kristy's #watercolorfragments compositions have come to life worldwide in countless destinations from the wide open Redrock vistas of Southern Utah to the wild strawberry fields of Iceland.

Queen Anne's Lace has long been considered a weed in the part of Pennsylvania Kristy calls home. One summer, her uncle mistakenly mowed an entire field of the delicate bloom and Kristy nearly panicked. She didn't have to wait long for this prolific beauty to make an appearance again. Combined with delicate watercolor leaves, live thistle and eucalyptus, this composition pops!
