Princess Amaryllis

17" x 29"

Painted completely within Inkscape - February, 2022

Printed on a textured, cellulose archival paper, from Hahnemühle {German Etching} with archival standards

This winter our friends Monika and Darrell gave us a bulb for an amaryllis.

Within days of watering it, the bulb took off and rapidly grew

Unless one looked it in detail, the flower was not extraordinary. But up close there were beautiful lines of colors

I again used special tools within Inkscape's vector graphics to create a wonderful background.

The textured paper from Hahnemühle is the perfect medium to further accentuate the background texture.
