New Goldback Fern Painting and Giclees

"Goldback Fern" is a newly created watercolor with pen and ink illustration of the west coast fern, Pentagramma triangularis. (detail shown to left).

This fern grows on rocky outcrops, and is a wonderful addition to any shady rock garden. The name referns to the silvery or gold backs of the frond.

The framed original was a commissioned work. If you are interested in commissioning a painting for yourself or a loved one, see "Commissioned Works" page, or contact Linda at vorobik@gmail.com.

 Matted giclee reproductions (edition of 200) are $30 each.

I have posted information for commissioned botanical illustrations. This would be of interest to botanists wishing to commission illustrations and to other illustrators interested in my fees or business procedure.

For teachers: I have posted a PDF for teachers to use, illustrating different types of inflorescences, or flowering stalks. And for those learning about botanical art, I have posted a botanical art annotated bibliography (first draft).

Happy exploring the wonderful world of plants & revelling in nature through art!
