Matilija Poppies

The matilija  poppy growing along side of my driveway is once again threatening to take over the world  (or at least my driveway).  It is now about eight feet tall and at least eight feet in diameter.  This print was based on a photo of the plant when it was in full bloom.  It is printed on Johannot white paper, a paper I haven’t used before but will certainly use again.

One of the problems with not labeling everything is that I soon forget what it is I have.  This sunflower was engraved on wood I bought in 2009.  I carefully labeled when I purchased the wood, but I did not identify what wood I had bought.  I think it is either pear or castello boxwood, but whatever it is it carves beautifully!  The print is approximately 3″ x 6″.
