I wanted to incorporate text into my prints, and I wanted to paint/print some daffodils because it's that time of year...time to get bulbs into the ground! My favorite reference to daffodils is Wordsworth's poem that ends with "And then my heart with pleasure fills/And dances with the daffodils."
That was the thinking behind this print. I drew the image and text onto linoleum, cut out the negatived space, inked the plate up with oil-based ink and printed it on Strathmore paper. Then, I added watercolor.
