#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.

Soon after Kristy and her husband built their home, a magnolia tree with the variety name of Wada's dream was planted. Wada was the name of Kristy's beloved great Aunt and this tree, with its massive pink blooms, reminds all who walk by of Wada's bold and energetic spirit. Petals were plucked from the tree to create this composition with added paper petals and brushstrokes. Now is that shadow painted or real?
