This card was originally designed as a poster for a little girl. Her grandmother, in Calgary, liked my original butterfly designs but encouraged me to make it “gentler.” Starting with my usual, vivid palette, she helped me tone it down to its current, pastel version.
My cards usually carry six images but I love this exception. The squares – if you look carefully – are actually rectangles, but the effect is true and the colours a perfect match for the original card stock.
The flowers you see here are at Queensdale Organic Market, one of my earliest and most loyal retailers, on Lonsdale Avenue (North Vancouver, British Columbia). Restocking my carousel here is always a pleasure.
