"July" - linoleum print

I am soooooo happy with this latest print, the third of my monthly series!

When I first decided to start this series, I didn't think about how difficult it was going to be to come up with 12 unique compositions all in the same size (5x7) using the same subject (a present.)  Now I realize what a design challenge this will be. 

I want each print similar in format because I plan on grouping all together when the year long project is complete.  Seeing the first three hung helps me think about the overall dark and light patterns I'll want for the entire series... 

Hopefully making each one a strong visual statement on its own, but somehow being different from it's neighbor.  I certainly have my work cut out for me these upcoming months, but I am really excited how this project is pushing me to think about bold design!

Hi Kayce, thank you!! I love this one too!

Hey Silvina!! I don't know how the interior mags make all those great interior pics, it took about twenty tries to get a decent pic that didn't have too much glare or too dark or wacky perspective! :) Miss your blogging!!

Thank you Kate!! I do think all the white area and limited black, made a bold statement, now let's see if I can do it the other way around and it work! :)
