Originating from the island of Capraia in Italy, and now found in tended gardens the world over, Dusty Miller has long been used as a decorative accent with its white color in vivid contrast with nearby green plants.  This particular example was merely one of dozens, contrasting with nothing but itself as the early morning sun gently accented its soft gray fuzz with subtle warm highlights. Though the single errant begonia leaf provides a vivid spot of color against the grey background, the real contrast comes from the various levels of light and shadow to be found among its layered leaves.  Narrowing the perspective of this image allows the viewer to concentrate on nature’s underlying patterns, and wonder about what might be hiding under each shadowy leaf.

  • Beartown Road Design print-images are printed in-house on a Canon Pixma Pro-10 printer. Prints are currently available in three paper sizes – 5 7/8” x 8 1/2” , 8 1/2” x 11” , and 13" x 19". Image size is slightly smaller to accommodate a small margin on all sides. (Watermark does not appear in final print.) Prints will be mounted on foam-core board, sized for either an 8 1/2" x 11" frame for the small print, 12 1/2" x 15" for the medium print, or 21" x 27" for the large print.
