Lieta Gratteri’s nursery 2021

“Central to creating a garden of interest is putting light-colored flowers in an area of shade and placing dark foliage plants in juxtaposition to gray-green textured plants.  Indeed, it is crucial to create a density of vegetation combined with a surprising bursts of color along a sight line or a path, and to develop moments where the visitor is fully immersed in the flowers, surrounding foliages, and a glimpse through the tree canopy above, so that the sky is barely visible” — D. Fairweather, Oregon master gardener

This Orchid Collection is inspired by attending the Garden Island Orchid Society Spring Fantasy Show on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Strolling through the colorful display of orchid plants was like traveling into a fragrant dream full of colors and shapes.  Some of the orchids were as tiny as a thumbnail while others had flowers as large as grapefruit.  I have attempted to recreate the orchid essence.” JR


“Part of the abstract composition is created by using powdered charcoal, light molding paste, and transparent fluid acrylic paint. To create the initial black and white underpainting, organic forms are used as stencils.  In this collection, you may see cedar boughs, sword ferns, or even the outlines of garden rake tines.  After the powdered charcoal is sealed onto the paper as many as 16 to 22 layers of transparent fluid acrylic paint are applied.
JR

“The most difficult part of the process is waiting for each layer to dry between each application of color and/or texture.  This building up of layers gives the impression that there is something more beyond the visible veneer.  The pieces transform and reveal new imagery in the various lights during the progression of the day.  By changing your observation angle you may see shapes and currents that were not viewed previously.” JR

“Grace helps us do more than we can on our own. Nature brings truths that we could never discover without the help of grace.”
