Archival Prints

I am adding archival prints to my Etsy shop. They will be printed on Velvet fine art paper which is producing a rich colorful print. I love the texture of this paper. For now there will be two sizes, first the larger, on a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet with an image of 7 1/2" x 10"and the smaller mini print 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" with an image of 4 1/2" x 3 1/4". As I add the images to my Etsy store I will post them to my blog.

Sunflower in Blue Vase

This is the second small painting that I have done using this blue glass vase. And, with each new painting there are a different set of issures to be worked out.

I have already started to buy my flower seeds for this year. I probably should order them in one shot from Burpee, but it is more fun to pick up a few at a time from the grocery store, big box store or where ever I happen to be. Each week my little collection starts to grow. Today I brought home Cosmos in orange and white. It will be a while yet before we can plant, snow, sleet and freezing rain for Friday.

This painting is oil on a 5" x 7" board.
