'Golden Hour No.1'

original art



goldenrod, watercolor, pastel, graphite on paper


This work on paper contains the highest concentration of goldenrod pigment of the entire series. It is also the most representational. The composition was created by first covering the paper in a generous wash of goldenrod pigment. After the initial wash dried, subsequent washes with traditional paints and pigments were placed, keeping the memory of the namesake in mind. Finally pencil, pastel, and watercolor was used to enhance details of the underpainting until an image of the goldenrod plant appeared.Please note that botanical pigments can fade over time. The foundational (background) washes of this piece may change color over time. For this reason, anyone interested in this piece purely because of aesthetics should purchase a fine art print, to assure that their piece will remain colorfast. I believe the changeable quality of hand made pigments is part of what makes them so special. If you think so too, then this is the piece for you! You can read more about natural pigments here.


This piece is part of the series “Of September.” In the colder days, when things are a bit more difficult, the memory of September keeps us going when we need it most. All original works in the series include some hand-made pigment from goldenrod plants which were harvested at the height of their bloom. The paintings in this series serve as a reminder of nature's most bountiful and generous season.Please consider measurements carefully before purchase and take the time to view colors on different monitors, as colors may appear different on different devices. I have done my best to represent all artworks accurately. All works are signed, stamped, and titled individually by the artist.Please note that your purchase does not include a frame. This original work on paper will look best when displayed in a frame. If you are unsure about which frame to choose, I have created a guide for you here.
