Iris, pansy, and rose floral art prints by Elizabeth Ruffing

Pansies floral watercolor art paintng by artist Elizabeth Ruffing

I made up four floral giclée art prints from my watercolor paintings of pansies and iris flowers.

Each one is 3.5 by 5 inches image size on 6 x 8 inch fine art paper. I chose a standard size 6 by 8 inch paper size to expand framing options, as these will fit in either a standard 5 x 7 inch or a standard 6 x 8 inch size mat and frame set, with a white border showing.

Each giclée art print has a decorative floral border surrounding the central image. Above is “Pansies”.

“Purple and White Iris”

“Peach Iris”

“Pink Roses with Gold Border”

OOAK, One-of-a-kind, Original Iris and Pansy Floral Art Quilts by Elizabeth Ruffing

Iris floral art quilt by Elizabeth RuffingThis is a one-of-a-kind art quilt made from 100% cotton batik fabrics, framing an archival quality canvas print of one of my original watercolors called “Valentine”. The canvas print is of a pale pink, almost white, iris, set against an Art Nouveau wallpaper design of darker muted magenta leaves winding in a heart-shaped pattern against a lighter muted magenta background.

Iris floral art quilt by Elizabeth RuffingThe print is framed by two complimentary shades of green batiks, which are then framed with a batik of muted mauves, purples, golds, greens, and blues. The outer edge is bound with a black batik with a subtle magenta and green pattern. The entire effect is really very beautiful, especially in person.

Iris floral art quilt by Elizabeth RuffingThe quilt is machine quilted in a stippled pattern of meandering stitches that go well with the batik patterns. There are no raw edges. A sleeve is sewn into the back of the quilt and a wooden decorative rod with rounded ball ends slips inside. The wooden rod is sponge-painted with acrylic paint in colors that match the background batik.

The size of this piece is 11 1/2 by 13 1/12 inches.

Pansy floral art quilt by Elizabeth RuffingThis art quilt features a canvas print of my watercolor painting “Pansies”, with a decorative border around the image.

Both quilts and their matching hanging rods were made entirely by me, and I’m very pleased with both of them.
