My new print 'Collection' was born and raised on the blog, starting out as a photo and then a painting and now a print which I've just listed in the Flower Press shop, printed on A4 heavy archival matte paper perfect for framing. In fact I did just that with the first of the run, and sent it off yesterday to my Mum for her birthday. I meant to get a photo, it looked so nice in its white Ikea frame!
This image started with my collection of blue and white china, found in different places over the years, some dug from the garden, some picked up on the beach, some even from a beach in Vietnam.
I was inspired to make a photograph (above) of my collection a couple of years ago, you can read about that in this post. A year later I finally sat down and made a painting inspired by that photo and recorded it here in My Creative Space here.
