Brazil Flower 2
This is the second in the Brazil Flower series. After I mentioned that I was involved in collecting flora to press, all from my property here, my dear friend in Rio began sending me pressed flower specimens from Brazil. So I began a series of flora from Brazil also. I don’t collect flowers in a scientific sense, noting their names in english or latin. Instead I look for character, and they all have it.
This image is printed 24×20″ and is one of two framed works, plus a large metal sculpture (also flora), that I will have on exhibit at our great local gallery, The Confluence Gallery, in Twisp, Washington. www.confluencegallery.com
The title of the group show is “Concept to Creation” and runs September 24 to November 5. Next to the art, the artist is asked to post a description of his/her inspiration and process in making the piece to give the viewer an insight into what is inside the work.
