Curbside Flowers

2B pencil on paper, 5 1/2 x 8 inches, from 2018.  Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited edition run of 50. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.

I sketched some clover years ago, thought it looked rich in an art nouveau sort of way, wondered what a full drawing would look like, and put it off because of the time it would take.  Since getting limited by chronic illness it seems now’s the time, so I’ve been accumulating photos.  Took a picture of these periwinkles and grass during a walk in early April, then did a study of part of it in June for a larger work.  Liked the study enough to complete it, so over three days I did this and also an ink version, settling on this as the keeper.
