Prints and cards of a thick group of late summer asters making their brilliant last stand before autumn. I painted the original painting plein air (entirely outside) at my home in Vermont. As I got closer to the flowers and ripening tomatos, I could hear them humming with life. I wanted to incorporate that feel in this piece. If you look closely, there are some hidden bees among the petals! This artwork would make a wonderful gift for a gardener, or a wildlife or nature lover.
Choose from 5” x 7” open edition and 8" x 10" and 11" x 14" limited edition size prints. Limited edition prints are on bamboo paper and come numbered, titled and signed by artist, either with or without a mat and frame. Open edition prints are not numbered, but are titled and signed by the artist and can also be framed. Unframed prints come with an archival backer and ship flat.
Framed prints are matted with an archival off-white mat and backer, under glass, and live edge frame is completely ready to hang. Mat and frame adds approximately 8” to each side; For example, an 8" x 10" print that is framed has final dimensions of approximately 16” x 18." Frame dimensions are approximate due to the variability of widths in the live edge wood; No two frames are alike. Artist-crafted frame is made from rescued slab wood, wood that is normally burned as sugaring wood or bonfires. Frame is finished in three coats of Vermont poly-whey varnish, a USDA certified biobased product. Note: photo of framed print includes a different example print but is to show the handcrafted mat and frame.
Inside of cards are left blank, ready for your personalization. Card measures approximately 4" x 5.25" and is printed on recycled white cardstock. Recycled square white envelopes are included with each card set.
