The second in my ongoing spring ephemeral wildflower series, “Bloodroot” is a hand carved 7-layer reduction print.
One of the first wildflowers to bloom each year - often well before the trees leaf out - it can easily be recognized by its distinctively veiny and deeply lobed leaf.
The orange-red root inspired the common name, and was historically used as a dye for clothing and warpaint.
Approximately 8” x 9.5”
Hand carved & pressed
