I grew up on a blueberry farm. It was an ideal childhood, living in the green, rolling hills of southwest Virginia, 2 miles away from the river and a quarter mile away from an acre of blueberry bushes. Every late summer/fall weekend from middle school to college, I’d pick buckets and buckets of berries and haul them to the Blacksburg Farmer’s Market. 50-100 pounds of berries would sell out in just a few hours, and when I was done, I always treated myself with fresh baked goods from the vendors at the market, and a slurpee from the 7-11 down the street.
And also why I am absolutely thrilled to make posters for the market!
I added transparent base to my ink to let the colors blend nicely, creating a third color on the apples and flowers. I am pleased with my little characters.
This week I am printing another market design, which I will post soon.
Prints are available for $15 each and may be purchased through me or at the Augusta Farmer’s Market. Snag some hand-made and home-grown Augusta products this weekend!
