IBM Corporation in the San Jose, CA hills, commissioned me to do a print as a gift for the IBM employees. My client pretty much gave me free rein to come up with an idea. It was spring when I visited the IBM headquarters. Happily, the surrounding hills were covered with California poppies at the time. This was a no-brainer--poppies would be the main subject matter! The skinny horizontal lines with triangles I added because the tiles in the courtyard had triangular tiles. I added the grasshoppers because...I could. And, the design would look empty without them. Theoutline around the flowers and the little triangles in the horizontal bars are done in a matte silver foil stamp.
As a side note, I recently visited the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve in the high desert in California. You arrive there and climb a hill and you see poppies for miles and miles in every direction. Amazingly beautiful. Plus, I saw my first horned lark while I was there.
