June (The Rose and the Bee) – Linocut Print
The sixth in a series of linocut prints created by Sophie over the course of a year. Sophie would not be tempted to second guess her subject matter for each coming month, but instead would wait with eager anticipation to see what inspiration nature would provide.
June’s gift was a pale pink Dog Rose; its golden stamens dusting Sophie’s honey bees with pollen. Perhaps the flowering of the Dog Rose each year could become a gentle reminder of your forthcoming anniversary; and this print - a thoughtful memento of your happy day.
Each design is carved from a single block, and then printed by hand onto cotton paper using an antique press. This print is available in green - chosen to reflect the particular time of year – and black.
