A Tulip Story
Inspiration for the print is a painting that hangs in my mothers bathroom! How’s that for inspiring places….Here is a photo of the painting
Going to France for a month to express your creativity was rather a normal thing to do, Electra obviously had talent. Madame Porthault had the business sense to turn creativity into an enduring business. I am attempting to do a bit of both!
I was visiting my parents in New York a few years ago when I noticed the painting like I had never before. Yes I was in the tub taking a warm bath so my mind was relaxed and at ease!
But I was also now in business and the painting jumped out of its frame and into my mind as a new print! I could absolutely see the print on a robe and pajamas, boudoir pillows and table linens!! Now all I had to do was make the print mine, and so the process began.
This takes quite a bit of time, usually a year or so of back and forth playing with colors and composition. Do we need a vase? Should the colors be pastel? How tight or loose should the repeat be for printing? All these questions need time and consideration. It’s a hard and rewarding process. I love it and feel very grateful I get to do it.
The final print : Hope you love it.
