New work

"Still Life with Flowers"

This is a linocut, hand coloured with watercolour. Image size is approximately 11.8"h x 13.5"w /30cm x 34.5cm

One of the 2 Artists Proofs is currently available on Ebay

Basing this series on inspirations from Australian Artist Margaret Preston - I admired her "Still Life with Flowers" (below) - from the look of it, it is a multiple block print done in the Japanese manner. I have paid homage to it in the the top right corner of my print.
