#watercolorfragments is a collection of fine art compositions by Kristy Rice.
T H E T E C H N I Q U E
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.

Kristy lives on a retired 40 acre farm where rolling hills and forest can be seen everywhere you look. In the warmer months, her front porch is filled with massive hanging baskets from a local nursery. Each summer she plucks bits from the growing baskets to create a word composition like this one. Intricate, time consuming and enchanting, each petal and brushstroke here tells a story.
