While walking through Portland, Oregon I came across wild Honesty plants growing along the sidewalk. Perfect! I had been trying to score some of the plant's beautiful seed pods to use as artist reference. Then just a few weeks later I was lucky enough to find more samples while on holiday in the San Juan Islands. Lunaria annua, you might know the plant as 'Chinese Coins' or 'Silver Dollars' which describes the lovely white membranes of their seed pods.
Using a variety of techniques including drypoint, monotype, chine colle and watercolor I've created a series of monoprints of these delicate and dynamic plants.
