In 2020, as the pandemic snuck up on all of us, I began a new series of botanical watercolors based on flora and fauna I was observing each week (or so), while also noting the changing news about the pandemic.  The series includes 16 prints.  The specimens are labeled with their common and Latin names, often with a brief bit of information added.  Also included are the date that I did each sketch, and the temperature in Earlysville, VA on that date.

Each giclee print on archival, acid-free bamboo paper is signed and numbered.  The photography of the original watercolor sketches and printing was done at Stubblefield Photo Lab in Charlottesville, VA.  Instantly frameable at 11″ x 14″.  All images are copyright 2021 by Suzanne Crane–please do not reproduce without permission.

Unframed limited edition (of 50) prints are $55 each plus $15 shipping.  The price below includes shipping.  Framed versions are available in my studio gallery for $120.

June 24 includes sketches of an Orchard Orb Weaver spider, bladder campion, and fringed loosestrife.  It is the last piece in the Spring in the Time of Covid series, and it does not include any pandemic news.  I just couldn’t keep going with the project after that.  I hope to return to sketching regularly in the coming year.
