#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.

Southwest Utah and namely Zion National Park have become part of Kristy and her family's hearts over the last decade. Kristy sat behind the Human History Museum in the park and painted the incredible formations (Towers of the Virgin and Bridge Mountain) seen there. Later, bits of wildflowers including Indian Paintbrush, Prickly Pear Cactus, Sagebrush, and Yucca were added to the painting to create the magical little scene captured in this art print.
