This 18 x 24, 4-color screen print is my illustration of all the 50 states in the USA. Each state flower represents and fills each state shape.

On left bottom: "Where flowers bloom so does hope" - Lady Bird Johnson
On left right: State Flowers By Thimblepress

The idea for this states series came from a quote I read when traveling through the beautifully flowered highways in East Texas near Austin. The quote is by Lady Bird Johnson which reads, "Where flowers bloom so does hope." I found that quote to be truly inspiring, and the starting point for all of my state flower illustrations. As First Lady, Lady Bird started a beautification project to improve conditions in Washington D.C. by planting millions of flowers. She also was instrumental in promoting the Highway Beautification Act, which sought to beautify the nation's highway system. What a neat lady!

Each original illustration of mine is a marriage of both the state shape and state flower.

Out of inspiration from Lady Birds' quote, each print comes with a small pouch of wildflower seeds with her quote printed on the outside. The seeds are just a little gift to encourage you or another person to beautify an area that may need some help, with a dash of wildflower seeds to start.

The color scheme chosen for the series was based around the actual flowers themselves. The yellow prints are all flowers that have a yellow to slight orange color, the red prints are all flowers that fall into the pink to red color, the green prints have flowers that are green and/or white, and the blue prints all have blooms of a violet to blue color. I chose to keep a simple palette when developing the colors.

The print measures 18 inches by 24 inches, which is an easy to find standard frame size!
