From the Artist:
"Flowers" 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 a collection (name of collector available from Charles More Gallery, Philadelphia) in the Washington, DC area. This print represents a still life of flowers in vases; it included cherry blossoms picked from the tree beside my house in Germantown and two little containers sent by my friend (Malitia Azami Agua) in Pakistan. This print was influenced by Bob Franklin - I listened carefully to his advice and acted on it with good results.
