The Botanist’s Notebook by Krista Anandakuttan 2009

Aren’t the best-loved books dog-eared and smudged? I once painted a notebook and page of pressed waterlilies and indigo–

Years later (now) I entered it in an exhibit celebrating books.

Here is “The Botanist’s Notebook” gouache on paper. Cast shadows, smudges and rust, specks of pollen, rendered in paint.

((Update July 2014: SOLD))
