Senna Marilandica by InnocenceBurning Senna Marilandica by InnocenceBurning
The first of 10 prints in a series of lino/woodcuts about flowers in the Savannah area, to be titled "Lowcountry Flora". This is a 12" x 12" linocut with a monotype background. Five in the series will follow this scheme; the five others will be 24" x 24" woodcuts also printed on top of a monotype background (the color in the image). This series is going to KILL me but I think the final product will be worth it.
I hope you guys like it - this is the style I have decided is my strongest, and this image as well as the upcoming ones in the series will be the artwork that will make up the portfolio I will show to prospective employers. I'm excited!!

The flower in this image, senna marilandica or Maryland Senna, belongs to the senna or cassia family, which also includes the magnificent Golden Shower Tree, native to Israel. The plants and trees of the senna family are known for their vibrant yellow flowers and are usually found in temperate locations.

The colours in this are absolutely beautiful - quite delicate but at the same time strong. Not like a typical floral! Very well done.

It's a linocut (linoleum block), so it's a little easier to carve than wood, but thanks!

It's amazing that you can get that much detail from a lino print. We did them last year at school, a bit of a failed project on the whole :D

I almost want to say its really bad, but obviously i cant. It's beautiful, I would love to have wall paper with this print. Have you ever considered using your prints for fabrics, wall paper etc.

Wow, that's incredibly smooth. The different texture of marks between the flowers and background foliage gives an excellent sense of depth, which I've never really seen in a lino/woodcut. Makes me want to try my hand at lino printing again...
