This plant, Frasera speciosa Douglas ex. Griseb, is commonly found in the Rocky Mountains at high altitudes--this one at 9,970 ft. from Caribou Ghost Silver Mining Town near Nederland, Co. This colored pencil on mylar was drawn with painstaking focus to capture each bud, leaf, and flower as it was presented in life. A fat bumble bee embellishes the piece, as it is a common pollinator for this plant. This piece is also available as an art card.
In 2017, I entered this illustration in an art show at the London Kew Gardens as part of an 11-person exhibit by the Denver School of Botanical Art & Illustration. We each received a Group Gold Medal Award from the Royal Horticultural Society at their annual botanical art show for our work in that exhibit "Rocky Mountains: Plants and Funghi with Altitude."
