New Print: Generations

Finally! A new limited edition, 18 x 24 giclee print in my shop, titled "Generations". 

This one has been a long time in the making, and I'm so happy to finally see it on paper! The idea sprang from a photo that my step-dad took of my grandma (96 years young!) my mom, myself and my little girl when she was about 3 months old. In the photo our heads are all very close and after looking at it many times, this image popped into my head. Four generations of people stacked kind of like an ice cream cone (yes, it really does all come back to food for me, doesn't it).

At first, I created it using shapes on the computer but it just never felt 'done' to me. So it sat on ye olde hard drive for many months. Then my arty breakthrough happened and I redrew the entire thing by hand, scanned the pieces back into the computer and played around. The flowers were very exciting to work on as well - allowing myself to get lost in some fun little details. I really love the result and hope you will too!

The fine print:
Generations is an 18 x 24 inch giclee (pronounced zhee-klay) print. Limited, signed edition of 50. Professionally printed in the US of A, on Legion Entrada Rag Bright 290 (a fine art, 100% cotton paper) and with Vivera Archival Inks, giving it an archival rating of 150 years. It will fit easily into any 18 x 24 inch frame (not included) but I like the Ribba frames at Ikea, or the frames sold at Aaron Brothers.
