Painting - Watercolor On Arches 300# Cold Press Paper
I was just moving out of a phase of painting my "Persistence of Pink" show of macro views of primarily pink flowers. The rich greens and yellow striping of this blooming plant with its touch of pink was a good transition to a new set of paintings. That new direction became a series of large succulent paintings that I spent 2018 working on for a November show in Anacortes, WA.
The art is professionally photographed which will make reproductions impossible to discern from the original painting other than the deckle edge of the painting which is part of the original art.
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 watercolor is painted on 300# Arches Cold Press paper. It is an original watercolor painting on a full sheet with deckle edge. A Certificate of Authenticity comes with the watercolor signed by Sandy Haight. It is framed with a 1" contemporary white metal frame and archival white foam core backing floating the artwork without a mat to reveal the deckle edge of the paper.

I was honored to win the gold prize as poster artist for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in 2016 with my watercolor painting of a tulip bouquet.
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 in recent paintings.
