Peaches are one of my favourite harvests of late summer. Peach trees, and their tiny white blossoms, feel so whimsical to me: their shades of yellow, orange, and red exuding warmth and their leaves extending tall and thin as if to form wings for the fruits they home. It all belongs in a story book, homing fairy doors and flittery, magical creatures.
This sweet fruit is the essence of summer, and I imagine many warm days filling wicker baskets filled with peaches at farms across the countryside: the day's harvests a refreshing reward for long afternoons spent in the August heat.
This botanical illustration is a part of the ever growing harvest collection — a handful of fine art prints I created with the intention of cultivating a space that encourages stillness, slow growth, self-compassion, and hope. Like each illustration in the collection, these peaches serve as a reminder to have grace with yourself as you plant your own seeds, grow your roots, and reap your well-earned harvests. The most bountiful gardens grow from the small of seeds — so during sproutless seasons, keep patiently tending to the unseen undergrounds: a time to harvest will come precisely when it’s meant to.

This print is packaged with sustainability at the forefront, and I am always looking for more eco-friendly options! For protection, my artwork is sealed in an eco-friendly slip that has a similar appearance and feel to plastic, but is actually made from plant-based PLA and is compostable (it is not home compostable, however, it is the best I can currently find).
To ensure your artwork stays safe as it makes its way from you to me, it also rests against a white backing board made from 100% recycled fiber, 90% post-consumer waste materials, and is pH neutral. Aside from providing the print with additional support, it is also great for framing your artwork!
Tucked inside your package will be a few little notes made from 100% wildflower seed paper so you can start a small garden of your own. Plant them in ⅛ inch of soil, water thoroughly, and place in a sunny spot to grow a colourful bundle of wildflowers.
