NATURE PRINTS/WALL DECOR cmkstudio2@gmail.com

IN THE GRASS BY THE SEA
Simplicity in poetry and print.  Sweet moments of reflection in the grass by the sea.  Sprigs of grass loose in the wind, splinters from driftwood all lightly brushed with premium quality professional grade ink and reproduced on white high gloss photo paper.  I dipped the end of a pine cone in gold ink to dab on dots of sand and added hearts to round out the connection of spirit and nature.
TALL SWAYING PAMPAS TOUCHES SUNBAKED SKIN.
A TRAIL OF WILD DAISIES SWEEPS THE SOUL IN. 
WARM GOLDEN SAND SIFTS BETWEEN TOES.
COOL SALTY SPRAY CAKES ON THE NOSE.
SEAGULLS BOB, EAGLES SOAR.
DRIFTWOOD, SEASHELLS, OCEAN ROAR.
IN THE EARTHY AROMA A TIME TO JUST BE.
THE SPIRIT AWAKENING IN THE GRASS BY THE SEA.

A MAGNIFICENT QUIET


The fruit tree and big maple leaves are dropping.  Gently brushed with premium quality professional grade ink, their images were placed on white cover paper to always be remembered.  A Magnificent Quiet, an original poem and one of my favorites, seemed a  fitting addition.

NO ROBINS SING, NO DISTANT BARKS, THE FROGS IN THE POND ARE STILL.
COLOR BECOMES VIBRANT AND LOUD, ORANGE SUN PURPLE LILAC SWEEPING ME IN.
UNITED WITH VERDANT TREES, BLUE SKY, TAWNY BROWN DIRT. 
FORSYTHIA BLINDS WITH BRILLIANT YELLOW AND I AM EVERY RED FLOWER, EVERY GREEN LEAF.
A DRY, SILENT BREEZE STROKES GENTLY EMBRACING MY SPIRIT, HUSHING MY MIND.
AND IN THE BRIEF MAGNIFICENT QUIET WE ARE ONE.

HEARTS AND FLOWERS

 Working in black and white is basic and clean.  Using premium quality professional grade black ink, these leaves, ferns, twigs were gently brushed and transposed directly onto white board. Dark and light features show variations in foliage texture.  Hearts are cut from paper, ink brushed, and added just for fun.  This piece has 8x10 white mat with black border and is framed in 11x14 black frame with glass.   $35.00 matted and framed.  $19.99 matted only.  Free shipping.   Easy purchase link coming soon.



AUTUMN TEA

Twigs, ferns, maples, and aromatic mint leaves were all brushed using professional grade ink.  Images were gently rolled onto quality high gloss photo paper.  Placed on sturdy white backing board and bevel matted to 8x10, finished piece is in 11x14 rustic frame with glass.  I wrote Autumn Tea after a warm visit with an old friend.  
CAPTURED IN THE WINDS AND LEAVES MEMORIES LAVISH HEART AND MIND
LIFE'S CHAFING TEMPERED WITH WARMING BREW ALLOWS THE SOUL TO SOAR AND FIND.
AROMAS OF A LONG AGO THAT DAY BY DAY ARE LEFT BEHIND.

This print and poem would be a lovely addition to a cozy tea room.  $39.95 matted and framed.  $21.50 matted only.  Free shipping.  Easy purchase link coming soon.


   
CAT IN THE NIGHT WOODS

One of my favorites.   A touch of fall and a companion in the night woods.  Sprigs of evergreens, twigs, apple tree leaves, ferns, stars, and a cat.  Foliage was gently brushed and placed on white board using premium quality professional grade black ink.  Stars added using stencil.  I'll leave the cat to your imagination.  Finished piece is bevel  matted to 8x10 in rustic 11x14 frame with glass.  $35.00 matted and framed.  19.99 matted only.  Free shipping.  Easy purchase link coming soon.

   

A WINDY WALK

A walk in the park on a windy fall day.   Rich earthy aromas, wood stoves burning, ferns, leaves, twigs, a rogue sprout of evergreen, three holly berries all melding together in the crisp air.  And in the moment you recognize that we are one. 

Brushed with premium quality professional grade black ink, each gift of nature was gently rolled to white board. Berries were dabbed with ink and lightly pressed to board.  Finished piece is  bevel matted to 8x10, framed in 11x14 black frame with glass. $35.00 matted and framed.  $19.99 matted only.  Free shipping.   Easy purchase link coming soon.



WOODY PATH TO THE BEACH

Curved, misshapen twigs, vines of ivy, sprigs of evergreens line the woody path to the beach.  Sea grass is bending in the gentle east breeze, gulls are chattering and driftwood is nestled down in golden sand.  Here's the quote at the bottom of print. "Take a moment to rest on traveled driftwood, body light, mind free, spirit joyful."

Foliage and slivers of driftwood were gently brushed with varying colors of premium quality professional grade ink and pressed to white board.  Dabs of gold sand were made with the end of a pine cone.  Birds and seashell added with stamps because they're part of a beach walk and fun to include.  Finished work is matted to 8x10 and framed in 12x16  beveled gold wood frame with glass.  $49.95 matted and framed.  $32.50 matted only.  Free shipping.   Easy purchase link coming soon.


SIMPLICITY

One of my earlier prints completed late fall 2016.  I love the intricate design of a maple leaf and yet it's so easy to relax into the simplicity of its natural beauty.

I brushed the leaf with premium quality white ink and pressed it to black backing.  Print is in 5x7 light gray beveled mat and framed in vintage 8 1/2/x11 darker gray frame.  SOLD
