I've always loved flowers and am in love with all of the flower stands that are in and around London. Sometimes I see new combinations of arrangements just by how the flowers are placed next to each other. When I lived in NYC in the early 90's, I would often marvel at the pretty blooms that would be on display outside of the neighborhood bodegas. Nowadays, I spend half of my week working at a flower stand on a bustling street, the other creating my art. It's my inspiration, my social interaction, my sell-it-like-you-mean-it retail gal coming to life. Funny how life comes full circle like that, huh?
This is a hand painted piece ... I create this by painting directly onto a silkscreen and transferring the image to the paper beneath using a squeegee. What I love about it are the imperfections and unexpected marks that occur by using this process, called a mono print (just one!) I work out of a collective studio in East London called Print Club London.
I do my best to capture the true colors of this original, but please note that colors may appear differently on your screen.
Due to the nature of the painting and then the screen printing process, there may be slight flaws that are part of the charm of an original, hand made monoprint.
VARIED EDITION OF 6 - each are slightly different and unique with the same colors and background, all hand painted.
23 cm x 23 cm / 9" x 9" with the image size 12 cm x 12 cm / 4.7" x 4.7"
I love this piece in a standard 25 cm frame that is easily available at Ikea. I'm happy to give framing suggestions.
Signed in pencil at the bottom right corner as well as on the back.
