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 email@example.com.
Matted giclee reproductions (edition of 200) are $30 each.

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).
