To tie in with Wales Week London, February’s print release will a print of a painting from 2011 called Another Daffodil
“Another Daffodil” – limited edition Giclée print (Feb 2022)
The plan for 2022, following on from the rather successful print releases of Autumn last year, is for a limited edition print release once a month throughout this new year. Always a limited edition of 25, signed and numbered, always priced at £35.00 direct from me via the Cultivate online shop
I grew up on the isle of Anglesey, North Wales, growing a new daffodil every year was a big part of Junior school with Miss Smith, it has always stuck with me. Every year around this time I find myself painting or drawing daffodils and thinking back. I did this painting in Hackney in 2011, I’ve been asked several times if there was a print, there is now
The print version of “Another Daffodil” is a limited signed/numbered edition of 25. a Giclée print on Hahnemühle Fine Art Bamboo.
