Explanation: I spent the summer 0f 2012 in the Catskills making studies of wildflowers in Lexington New York. These flowers/weeds were gathered along the sides of the road within a half–mile or so of where we were staying. I am interested in native versus invasive species as well as the rich history and lore surrounding these beauties. You will see my notes scribbled alongside the collages in my sketchbook. These are 10 of the 40 some studies.
