Shakespeare Sonnet 18 excerpt, numbered, signed watercolor 8x10 print giclee


It starts out:
"Shall I compare thee to summer's day..."

but the lines here build that great longing:
"Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date"

William Shakespeare's lines are written in sepia india ink calligraphy and flank a pale pink morning wooded area where the winds are indeed shaking the darling buds in watercolor.

Limited edition print series of 50, (the original has sold) signed and numbered by Jocelyn Boblink on heavy off-white Somerset Velvet acid-free textured print paper, is professionally printed in lightfast digital ink. Color is very true to the original-- in fact, hard to tell the difference. Watermarks will not appear on your print.

Different variations of my poetry series have been gifted to schools, literature junkies, retiring English teachers, the incurably romantic, etc.

I can't speak highly enough about this seller. When my shipment was rejected due to a post office carrier, Jocelyn worked with me to get my item delivered before Valentine's day. 5 Stars.
