I lived in Washington, D.C., Boston, Massachusetts and New York City for a total of eleven years between the three. This represents a contemporary floral display that I would see in the neighborhood flower markets.. Always the smell of cinnamon buns was in the background. I think of this as comfort flowers. I would buy them and take them home and arrange them into a red vase. This painting was displayed in London, England on a building and finally purchased by a lovely couple who live in Canada.
Original piece: India ink with pen and acrylic ink applied by brush on 500lb cold-pressed paper.
Purchased print is a limited-edition, professional glicée print, rendered on high-quality archival matte paper. The glicée print realistically displays the textures associated with pen and ink art. The standard print includes a sizable white border surrounding the artwork (as displayed in the image above). Matted pieces are prepared with one inch of matting on the top, left, and right, with two inches of matting at the bottom. Approximately 1/8” of the white border remains along the matte’s edge on the top, left and right. The title of the artwork and Sallie’s signature are visible along the bottom of the print.
