This poster is inspired by the spiritual bouquet Saint Therese, the Little Flower, prayed leading up to her final vows as a Carmelite. She had a prayer journal, and for each day, she chose a white flower and specific prayer to add to the spiritual bouquet. The French text labeling the flowers is all inspired by her own handwriting and even includes a spelling mistake in the French for jasmine (du jasemin instead of du jasmin) as she wrote it.
Images of the prayer journal can be found at the Archives du Carmel de Lisieux.
After I paint or hand letter the art, I digitize them and have them printed on the following substrates:
- 100 lb white linen paper for an elegant and high quality finish.
- high-quality, archival grade, acid-free, 100% cotton rag, 21 mil, 340gsm cold press watercolor paper with a bright white, textured surface.
- 230 gsm neutral-white, archival matte paper.
- Stretched canvas on .75in pine wood stretchers is available for pieces size 8x11in and up. The canvas used is thick archival grade, poly-cotton blend canvas to provide greater durability, and the canvas is pH neutral and acid free so it will not yellow over time
Your print is packaged in a sturdy cardboard mailer or tube to ensure it is delivered safely to your door. Frames and props are not included in your purchase.
