Botanical print, "The Gathering," a hand-pulled, one of a kind print of hibiscus leaves, direct relief printing, monotype, botanical print. Green ink Celebrate spring, celebrate Earth Day.

Take a leaf that's fairly plain; a leaf of a plant that's prized for its blooms;
A leaf that few people even notice next to the showy and beautiful blossoms of the hibiscus. Hibiscus leaves!

Take a leaf and another leaf, and another and another, and soon there's a gathering of leaves that makes an eye-catching pattern every bit as beautiful as the flowers they power.

This print is a paean to all the humble leaves who make food and energy for all the showy flowers of the world and yet go almost unnoticed.

This one-off print was made one leaf at a time; direct relief method. There is only one of this work of art in existence.
An impression of a leaf was made and the ink had to dry. Another leaf printed; ink dried, etc. until the whole group was there.
Each new leaf impression could have gone wrong and ruined the composition,,,,,

Size 16" x 20", water-based ink on Speedball archival printing paper. White mat. Sleeved. All archival materials. Print is signed by artist and includes a certificate of authenticity.

The print ships matted but unframed, in cellophane, and in protective outer packaging.

This would make a great gift for a plant-loving friend or the gardener on your list. The green color will blend with just about any decor.
