Aria Print by Sandy Haight
This dahlia is singing from deep within its petals bursting out with tips of magenta that deepen as they get larger and cascade down the bloom. I found this beautiful flower at the Butchart Gardens near Victoria, BC, a great destination for flower lovers.
The painting is pure transparent watercolor on a full sheet of 300# Arches Cold Press paper. The image goes right through to the ragged deckle edges of the paper. This painting is floating on an archival backing without a mat to show the lively edges of the paper. Framed with a white metal contemporary frame and plexiglass.
My paintings are professionally photographed making prints almost identical to the original painting.

For the past dozen years I've been painting flowers up so close that they envelope the viewer in their sensuality and rich color. I call these paintings Floralscapes as they feel like a landscape of bloom that the viewer can get lost deep within. These Floralscapes, Watercolor Life Drawings and Sumi paintings can be seen on my fine art web site at http://www.sandyhaightfineart.com.
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.
I’ve used watercolor and ink brush line in my illustration work for over 20 years, but in a much more controlled and predictable way. My artworks appear on book jackets, ads, posters, logos and packaging all over the country and Canada.
