This is one "artwork" of many in my family's vacation house, which has become the lucky dumpster for all the rejected furniture, hand-me-down linens, and forlorn Christmas gifts which no one wanted to keep in their own home. Most of the art is of the same 70's era as this sweet silkscreen, including gigantic sculpted daisies and cartoonish maps of the area. I was really struck by this one, however, because of the mirrored, stylized flower motif. Ignoring that 70's earth palette that makes me want to throw up, (yeah, I know, some people like that stuff these days), I thought this was an unexpected inspiration for a drawing. Like a psychedelic background for one of my portraits. I gotta learn how to silkscreen.
