My daughter Anna recently asked me to make some prints for her to hang in the living room of her apartment. She is a junior at the University of MN and lives with four other girls. When I asked her for some ideas she just said something like, “Something big and nice.” Well, that certainly narrows it down doesn’t it!
I gave some thought to landscapes or images of some interesting area landmarks. Then I realized she has spent more of her life in Minnesota than Wisconsin so maybe a couple city-scape shots of Twin Cities landmarks or the Minneapolis skyline.
Jean and I were in New York City this past weekend and while visiting some galleries I came upon the idea for flowers in isolation against a black backdrop. Ran out to a local flower store and picked up a few Lilies and went to work. Here are a couple of samples. I think they turned out pretty nice.
Ok Anna, it has been decided. I am going to work on getting you some poster sized prints along these lines. I hope you and your roommates like them!
