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.
Limited edition archival prints are on bamboo paper and come numbered, titled and signed by artist, either with or without a mat and frame. Unframed prints come with an archival backer included 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. There are two print sizes to choose from, 8" x 10" and 11" x 14". Mat and frame adds approximately 4” 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. 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.
