Well in my spare time, I have added a third flower print to my portfolio. This one is of poppies beneath a scrub oak. It is 18"x12' for those that like to know that stuff (as I always do) printed on rives bfk tan with ds black oil ink. Your comments and suggestions are invited. Last night at our open studio on first friday, I promoted the piece with a special pre-publication price. Didn't sell one of these, but did sell another sunflower.

Thanks for your assistance. And keep the ink flowing.

It's beautiful, Doug... My only complaint is that your image is too small. I want to soak in all that detail but can't see it well enough... I'm assuming this is a linocut?

You are really classing up this joint with your work. I like the composition and your paper and ink choices. It's just lovely...

Very nice... I like how you spend your 'spare time'...

But, Like Diane, I am going to have to complain about the size of this image- It looks like it has so much detail, and I want to see it :clap:

I am really liking the flowers, I think this is even better than the sunflowers...

Ver inspiring.. I have been busy with etching, but may need to pull out a linoleum block again after seeing this! Great design and execution. - Carol

Beautiful, I like the composition/perspective that draws the eye into the picture. It's like you're joining the poppies in their little corner by the oak tree. :)

Dear Doug,

This is gorgeous, absolutely meticulous but with just the right amount of 'Art' to make it a superb piece.

Why no try it on eBay, bet you would sell it there.

Regards - Jim

GORGEOUS!! Just gorgeous!! :clap: And I love how you show the poppy in its different stages--pre-bloom, bloom, seed head! Great detail, great design.

beautiful print! I too love the way you show different stages of the poppy, it really shows what a poppy is like. Lines flow nicely. What is the actual size of this print and how much are you selling it for?

Nice stuff! The craftsmanship is beyond reproach, as far as the composition goes on the left it seems things are sort of evenly spaced with the negative space. It almost looks like a print from a design studio, because nature wouldn't be so ordered. : )

Interesting observation Janemoth. Thanks to you and everyone else for your comments and kind words.

excellent work!
very nice botanical study
I like the way it is finished with the rounded corners
someone else mentioned the great play of positive and negative space
you have it down perfectly!

I don't know how I missed this, Doug. You certainly did a good job on the cutting, and I like the use of the tan paper in this piece. It gives it warmth like a summer day.

Wonderful, 'toning' and heavy compositional values really keep the eye in the image. Well done.
