Painting: Paint, Watercolor on Paper.
Title: "Dahlia Darling"
Some dahlia's twist and curl sending their petals out of the perfect unity of pattern that many dahlia's display. I love it when there's a variegation of color within these lively petals. This painting was part of a series of pink paintings for my "Persistence of Pink" show this spring in Anacortes, WA. The large scale of the macro view surrounds the viewer in a warm pink glow.
For the past few years I've been painting flowers up so close that they envelope the viewer in their sensuality and rich color. Enlarged, they become almost abstractions from nature without seeing the outer shape or the environment around them.
This is the original painting, not a print. The watercolor is painted on 300# Arches Cold Press paper. It is framed with a white metal 1" contemporary frame floating on white archival backing to see the deckle edge of the heavy weight paper. A Certificate of Authenticity comes with the watercolor signed by Sandy Haight. It is ready to hang for your pleasure.
Painting size: 30" x 22"
Frame Size: 39.5” x 31.5”
I’ve been using watercolor and ink brush line in my illustration work for nearly 20 years, but in a much more controlled and predictable way. My pictures appear on book jackets, ads, posters, logos and packaging all over the country, with clients in England and Canada. If you’d like to see my world of client driven projects, check out my published artwork at http://sandyhaight.com. My Watercolor Life Drawings, Sumi paintings and watercolors are Teaching watercolor has recharged my interest in painting subjects that I love.

In 2012 I qualified to be a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS). This is earned by being juried into a select number of local chapter and international watercolor society shows sponsored by NWWS. The initials now follow my signature on my paintings in this Floralscapes shop.
