Mary Walcott (July 31, 1860 – August 22, 1940) was an American artist and naturalist known for her watercolor paintings of wildflowers. She began painting illustrations of wildflowers that she saw on family trips to the Rocky Mountains of Canada.
In 1925 the Smithsonian published some 400 of her illustrations, accompanied by brief descriptions, in a five-volume work entitled North American Wild Flowers.
I was initially interested in her paintings after a vacation to the Rocky Mountains and the beauty of it all. I found the North American Wild Flowers book on e-bay.
I found some frames on sale and had the mattes made.
They hang in my kitchen above the buffet. This picture was taken after the Christmas decorations were put away so the buffet is bare. No sunshine today to take a new picture.
Would a set of these be a fun giveaway?
