KM3018 Arctic Cotton Grasses by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (48x48 landscape, cotton grasses, Canada)
This is my painting done for the "Grab Bag" show at Brushstrokes Fine Art Gallery here in Denver. We each put an object into a bag that was given to another artist at our studio. I got 3 cotton balls to interpret on canvas. After searching for images of cotton I came across an amazing photo of Arctic Cotton grasses in the Nunavut Canada Wilderness by photographer Tim Hauf who kindly gave me permission to use his amazing photograph. After researching, I found that these flowering plants grow throughout the arctic, subarctic and temperate portions of the Northern Hemisphere in acid bog habitats. Who would have thought that 3 cotton balls would lead to discovering new plants!!!! Love new adventures!
