The seed packet I illustrated for HUDSON VALLEY SEED LIBRARY is now available for sale. It makes a wonderful holiday stocking stuffer or gift if thats your sort of thing.
The technique used to create this image is an acrylic paints colored linocut.
FROM THE SITE - " Gardeners may think there is nothing green to do in the winter, but winter is when we release our new Art Packs. Pack Art 2011 is a winter garden of art that will get seedy people dreaming about next season. Dreaming is an essential part of gardening in the Northeast. Our dreams are where we hold the flavors, smells, and beauty of our garden bounty during the bleak winter.
This year’s artists were selected from a pool of over 70 submissions. They come from all over the Hudson Valley and New York City. Each artist interpreted one variety of herb, flower, or vegetable from the Seed Library’s catalog. Mediums include collage, encaustics, oil, watercolor, digital, paper cutting, and ink. Artist range from up-and-coming to world renowned. The diversity of the artwork reflects the many stories behind each variety and the genetic wonder that makes each plant unique.
Signed, limited edition giclee prints of the original artworks will be for sale during the opening along with Art Packs filled with seeds and framed seed packs.
2011 Pack Artists: Links to more information about each artist can be found in the description of each variety in our Holiday Catalog."
