Water Lily on Pond
Botanical portrait of water lily painted at the Yampa River Botanical Park.
Beginning in 1995 the Yampa River Botanic Park sprang from a flat horse pasture to a six acre gem of ponds, berms, and over 50 gardens. It is one of the jewels of Northwest Colorado and one of a handful of botanic gardens in the State.
The Botanic Park is an innovative, perhaps unique, experiment in private/public development and maintenance of a public botanical garden. The six acre Botanic Park sits on land donated to the City of Steamboat Springs by the founders. The Botanic Park is maintained and governed by an Association, a volunteer organization that was delegated by the City to manage the Park, raise funds, hire staff, and design, create and maintain the gardens. The organization receives no tax dollars and is supported by the generosity of members, donors, and private foundations.
I often paint with a group of fellow artists in the Botanical Park on Wednesday mornings during the summer months and as a result have a collection of many different botanical examples growing within the Park.
This painting is beautifully framed & matted. It measures 17″x14″
