Artwork description:

I captured this image of the heirloom nasturtium plant "Indian Cress" growing in my herb garden. I love these vines with such vibrant flowers and peppery leaves, both eaten in salads. Framed giclee print on Epson Premium photo paper of an altered digital photograph with my signature lightbox. Signed and dated on the back it comes wired to hang with a dust cover. Frame is matte black with anti-glare plexi.

The Latin name for this plant, Tropaeolum majus, has a gruesome history. From the Greek "traopaeum," a pillar erected on the battlefield to display the armor of vanquished foes, for Linnaeus thought the leaves resembled a shield, and the flowers spear-pierced, blood-stained helmets (Proctor).

Giclee is a form of fine art printing. This method actually sprays and mixes the archival quality inks onto the paper typically using six colors. This print was created using an additional 2 colors (light black and light light black) resulting in an extensive color gamut with true color representation of the original artwork/photograph.
