Works On Paper

ABOVE: I Will Wait For You Forever © 2022 Kristin Maija Peterson. Watercolor on 300 lb. Fabriano Watercolor Paper  (28” x 33.5” Framed) 1700 USD

I Am a Beauty Hunter.

My artwork represents the wild, the messy, the misunderstood, the “scape” within the landscape. The spaces and places I find intriguing and magical are often passed over and yet their details and complexities reveal ecosystems vital to the whole and our well-being. There is such beauty in the natural chaos of things.

The footpath was strewn with fallen yellow Aspen leaves. The contrast was stunning and I wanted to capture it somehow. The swirl of the leaves and the white grains on the path made me think of space, planets and floating, weightless over the Milky Way. It also made me think of the refrain from Joni Mitchell’s song Woodstock.

We are stardust
We are golden
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

Deep down, I think we all want to get ourselves back to the garden, find ourselves re-connected with nature. Nature is a part of who we are after all.

Special Note: The inked background was created using .005 Pigma Micron Archival Ink pens. I went through a total of 14 pens to complete this piece.
