La Plumeria

16.5" x 16.5"

Painted completely within Inkscape - October, 2021

Printed on cellular paper from Hahnemühle {German Etching 305} with archival standards

About 30 years ago we attended the Southern Spring Garden Show in Charlotte.

We purchased stock to grow a Plumeria. It did not take.

About 5 years ago, we obtained another stock, and I was quite skeptical.

But Heidi persisted, and the last two years we've seen beautiful flower.

As kind of a way to atone for my failure to provide Heidi with lots of support, I opted to create this painting.

I tried printing on several different papers. But of course the German made Hahnemühle worked best.

Aside from the proof there is only one print.

The above image comes from the .jpg file.

The actual print has softer edges, and literally jumps from the German crafted paper.
