I saw a beautiful exhibit once where the artist collected flowers and grasses and arranged them in lines on the floor of the gallery. It was a very elegant monochromatic piece as all the plants were dried.
I was inspired by that idea and by early botanical prints to create this print series using individual linoblocks carved to represent a range of botanical items. These blocks were inked in a custom colour blend and printed over a background of soft autumn colours.
Edition of 5.
This print is one of a series of four prints. You will find Fall Botanical, Winter Botanical and Spring Botanical in my other listings.
