About the Design:
I made this Artist proof of my Maypop block print while experimenting with colors for a possible color edition with my maypop block. Because of the gradient techniques I'm using, each print is very different. Less than 100 imprints will be made using this block. The design features a ultra detailed flowering and fruiting passionflower, or “maypop” as I always called them. These exotic (and delicious) native plants grew wild along the local railroad tracks when I was a kid, and even as an adult I don’t think I’ll ever tire of staring at their delicate flowers and bold fruit. (Note: this cost of this print is slightly higher on this color edition, because the inking process takes significantly longer. See process pics!)

About Block Printing:
Block prints often have slight textures and variations in the finished products. I think that's why I love them-- each one is special. Please be aware that, colors may differ from your computer screen.

This was a gift to my daughter, and I shipped it to her house. So I didn't see it myself, in real life, but she LOVED it!
Sent as a gift and it looks beautiful where my friend put it in her house!!
