Artwork description:

Every year in June, us Scandinavians celebrate midsummer and the part of picking wildflowers is very important... put them under your pillow, 7 different kinds, and you'll dream of your beloved!

I made 11, and varied the colors going along, so there are 2 versions, this one in pink ,and one in turquoise, of course, making life very difficult for myself as that means taking more photos!!
I used happy bright colors, to celebrate summer and all its traditions.
This is a very traditional linocut, I do like the look of the cut, showing my hand in every print, carving the lino plate is a labour of love, and making it several colors, means that for every color, the print goes through the press again, time consuming, but oh so satisfying! My favorite printmaking technique and one that celebrates the art of handmade prints.

The lovely piece of bright white heavy weight printmaking paper measures 45 cm x 50 cm (18" x 20") and the actual lino plate, the printed area measures 39 cm x 39 cm (15.5" square)

I have signed and numbered each print, please note you might not receive the number in the photo.

Shipping from my studio in Denmark, I have many years experience of packing my prints so they arrive safely, see my reviews!

Thanks for looking and you are very welcome with questions.
