Lavender

Matted and framed to 10 x 8 inches.  $95.

These summer florals make me so happy.  It's a great way to practice capturing the essence of a plant. I love all the herbs, but lavender makes me happy on a cellular level.   

Our lavender is pretty happy.  There were a few plants that suffered greatly from the affection of the dog.  Turns out that Pepper loves sleeping on lavender. [Who can blame her?]    Several of our bushes were crushed and had to be pruned way back, but they are mostly recovering and we're trying to find a way to protect them from her attention again this year.

More Bluebells

Matted and framed to 11 x 14 inches.  $225


Another view of the bluebell wood down by Richland Creek.  

This is the first time I used the 300# Indigo paper and I have to say that I love the pebbly texture. The company has made some manufacturing changes since this batch was purchased and I'm excited to try their new paper.  I hope it has this same great texture.

Rain Makes Green

©Robin Edmundson, 'Rain Makes Green - Goose Pond', watercolor, 18 x 24 inches.
Framed and matted to 24 x 30 inches.  $750.

We had a wet spring. 

A very wet spring.

Here's the thing though:  It's kind of magical to watch the clouds gather, the sky darken and those sheets of rain move in from across the flats and lowlands. 

The wetlands soak it up [It's what they do best] and things turn a gentle green.

Goose Pond

© Robin Edmundson, 'Goose Pond - 531', watercolor, 18 x 24 inches.  $750
[Matted and framed to 25 x 31 inches]

As I've worked with this reference photo and explored the spirit of this place, I decided to work bigger and tried this piece on an 18 x 24 inch block.  It helped me get a bit more personal with the marsh grasses.
