Thriving - hand coloured lino print
Last summer, at a time when I was saying goodbye to the possibility of having more children, I was feasting on satsuma plums from my garden.
The fruit-laden branches, the hat-nest of fertile eggs, the heart-centred plum – all capture this moment of juicy gratitude for creativity, kind-heartedness, and all the possibility that comes with change.
Brilliant for a woman exploring new directions and expressions of herself.
This is a limited edition totalling just 5 hand coloured prints. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that just 4 other people on the entire planet will have, this is for you! As of this writing there are 2 of the original edition remaining unframed - 4/5 and 5/5 - and 2 artist proofs (APs) available (AP1 and AP2)! See the drop down menu above to select yours...
I make limited edition lino prints by first carving a design into a piece of linoleum, then rolling the lino with ink, and then pressing this onto paper.
Once I’ve created the lines, I do all my colouring with Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours. When creating my original art, I use Archival quality watercolour paper, usually 100% cotton Arches paper from France.
The dimensions of this image are about 30cm x 30cm (approx 12" x 12"), and there is ample paper around that for mounting and framing. Good framing adds around 10 - 12cm (5") on all sides, more at the bottom.
I recommend ordering Unframed if it's coming to you via the postal service/s - this saves us both money on postage, and gives you the chance to support a local framing artisan, too. [Hesitant to manage framing locally? Download my new art collectors introduction to the basics.]
If you meet me at a market stall to pick up, I can arrange professional framing for you in about 2-3 weeks.
