While making our 2014 calendars, I set aside a few sheets of paper coated with UV-sensitive cyanotype solution, and made a series of prints of dried Queen Anne's Lace. I love that drying the flowers preserves each seed head in a different state - sometimes bold and opening, in full bloom, and other times withered. The flowers are so delicate and I love that the cyanotypes capture a little of their natural motion and growth. I can almost feel the gentle summer air in which they lived.
