From the Artist
This is a five-color print with a yellow printed first, followed by an off magenta, burnt sienna, off-process blue, and a grey-black with a double hit. There are spots of sanding for highlights through the edition: two spots on flower petals (cherry blossoms and an unidentifiable flower), one on a small metal container (Pakistani) as a highlight, and one on the vase behind the tiger lilies to relieve a shadow rendered overly dark by double hit.
The design of the print is based on a painting of 1991 that is in the Orloff Collection in Atlanta, GA. This print represents a still life of flowers in vases; it includes cherry blossoms picked from the tree beside my house in Germantown and two little containers sent by my friend (Maliha Azami Agha) in Pakistan. This print was influenced by Bob Franklin — I listened carefully to his advice and acted on it with good results.
