Ahhhhhh Spring. It’s here! And just in time for Arbor Day (US observed).

Arbor Day was one of my favorite elementary school days. I swear we went outside in the fresh spring air in the morning, watched a new tree planting and dedication, had some cupcakes back inside the school room and then (!) Smokey The Bear would come visit and talk to us in the afternoons. Maybe I’m mashing a few special school days all into one, but I don’t care. That’s how I remember Arbor Day. So, I wanted to release this new limited edition art print on Arbor Day!

From a few designs I was playing with a few weeks ago, (see my previous blog post here and more designs here on my Flickr page here) I chose this one to be my Spring 2009 art print. I just love the simplicity and the surprising way that magenta and this tender, light green interact and work together.

This is the second print in a series of seasonal, limited edition prints that I’ll be releasing. Ready? Here’s the mind-blowing part – there will be 4 prints per year. Crazy! I know!

This springy dance is a 2-color, hand printed screenprint, with bright new green and transparent magenta inks. Magenta overprints green in parts to make a ruby red. Edition of only 50. Size: 16.5w x 22h inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: acid-free & archival Cougar 100lb White, cover weight. Now available for sale on my website here.  There are a few process photos that I took while printing this on my Flickr page here as well.

  1. Hi Strawberryluna, I LOVE IT! The layering of the wee berries over the green is gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration. Awesome as always. xo-Kelly (from Berkeley)

  2. Hi Kelly, gosh thank you so much! I really appreciate that. I really like how colors that shouldn’t go together sometimes really do. If you get me.

    Have a swell day out there in Berkeley. Cheers!
