#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.

Pieris Japonica is the second bloom to come alive in Kristy's garden every year. The bell shaped mini flowers last forever in a vase and on the page too without water to sustain. Delicate painted leaves and a watercolor branch connects the two-dimensional with the three. Can you see where?
