I was commissioned by Mt. Runners of Mt. Shasta, California. To design an artwork for their annual Mt. Shasta Run/Walk event in 1998. The design requirement was to depict a native flower and Mt. Shasta, so I painted three different butterflies on Groundsel flowers. In addition to the T-shirts, an edition of prints were made.

Trillium Flower Cluster

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 8″h x 12″w, 2000.

I saw this cluster of Trillium Lilies while I hiked along the Pacific Crest Trail in Southern Oregon. It had a wonderful composition, and I created it so that all the stages of the flower color transitions of white, pink, and red were all in one cluster. I did this in technical botanical illustration style.

Shasta Lily Study

Shasta Lily Study & Shasta Lily Reproduction

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 12″h x 8″w, 2000, Revised 2021.

The Shasta Lily (Cascade Lily) is a gorgeous flower found in shrubby and rocky areas in the Pacific Northwest. I found this one beside the Pacific Crest Trail in Siskiyou County, California. I thought it would make a nice painting. The first version of this painting had no background. The second version had a loose colorful wash. The final version has a very dark background that better accents the beautiful colors of this lily.
