Sunflowers - $35.00
This is a Linoleum Cut Print with added hand coloring with watercolor paint, 11" x 15", on acid free artist paper. This image is also available in other colors.

George McKim lives in Raleigh, North Carolina where he creates Fine Art Paintings, Collage, Lino Prints & Note Cards. Many of his works utilize line in a variety of ways, some more like gesture drawings, others almost pointillist. His linoleum cut, Sunflowers (pictured above) uses short, wavy lines throughout to create movement much like Van Gogh did in many of his paintings. The closeness or distance at which he places those lines changes the feel of the art. At the top right the lines get further apart to create the feeling of vast space, and further down they are denser giving off a sense of vibration and vitality as they get closer to the earth.

He sells his note cards for $3.00 each (or set of 5 for $12.00) and will mix and match the ones you would like.
