"Ranunculus" is more commonly known as the buttercup.   I'm sure many of us have memories of holding one of these bright yellow flowers under our chin when we were children to see if we liked butter.   The name "ranunculus" means "little frog" probably because the buttercup is often found growing near water, like frogs!

This original mixed media artwork was drawn with a water soluble pen with my non dominant hand on a collaged substrate of papers including some from a vintage textbook on beekeeping.  I added a wash of gesso before doing my drawing, then brought the piece to life with watercolors.  

The artwork is 4" x 6" on paper and will be shipped to you in an archival sleeve so that you can frame it to your liking.
