I recall a recent conversation I had with Juliana about fabric and prints and why we are so obsessed with flowers to the point where it almost exclusively dominates our decor. We, being civilization. The two of us concluded that if one looks to nature as a source of inspiration, what else would you choose, really? Of course flowers. They encompass every bit of beauty, architecture, color, repetition, metamorphosis, and perfection one needs to stay inspired and never exhaust the possibilities to portray them some other way. I find myself trying very hard to exhaust roses in my own work, by playing them out every which way and in various media. Joyously, I cannot. And so I keep at it.
(Pauses to acknowledge baby girl after a mighty squeal of delight as though she agrees.)
I am starting a new personal project that I have been thinking about FOREVER. My friend Heather encouraged me to push on and do it about 6 months ago. I'm so excited to say that I am- limited edition prints of my artwork! Developing the first release has been really fun, and I will be sharing more soon. I took a little poll on Instagram, and an overwhelming majority seems to really wanna see Roses, Moths, Butterflies in print form. What say you?
There will be about 4-6 different prints. I am hoping to have the final works up for pre-sale as we welcome Autumn in just a couple weeks. And then we will be shipping them out a few weeks later. This is something that I hope to do about twice a year, with new editions each time. I'm really excited and can't wait to show you what I've been working on for them!
Happy Wednesday! xoxo, AnnaMaria
