    Capture the Spirit of Flower Day
    I created the Detroit Eastern Market fine art series to capture the unique landscape of bustling flower lovers and this historical landmark. These prints are created as a tribute to the iconic Farmers Market. To bring the atmosphere of the market to your home and keep you in the Eastern Market mood all year long.

    About the Artist –
    My first visit to the Eastern Market was on Flower Day, over 55 years ago. It was early in the morning and very cool. Just before the crack of dawn, the place was already bustling with activity and the atmosphere was filled with the chatter of market patriots & rumblings of many transportation vehicles. The background noises created a cacophony of sounds that would become the unique voice of the Eastern Market.  Since that time, I have been under the magical spell of the 150-year-old historic farmers market. At the beginning of every summer, the market calls out to me… “come and visit Flower Day is near.”


    About the Fine Art Prints

    The Paper
    Because Paper can greatly influence the appearance of the print;

    DAYSTAR BRAND Fine Art Reproductions

    The photograph art is professionally printed on MOAB acid-free archival paper; fine art paper with a water-resistant vellum surface. It is made from 100% cotton fiber and is acid and lignin free. I use only CERTIFIED Giclee printers. Giclee prints will not yellow or fade over time.

    All substrate paper sources meet’s archival standards set by Fine Art Trade Guilds for pH and acid content and light fastness; you are assured of receiving the highest quality you are paying for.

    Protective Coating

    Additionally, each print is sprayed with a MOAB protective coating, preventing scratches, fingerprints, scuffing. MOAB is designed to help eliminate these threats while enhancing the surface of the paper.

    DETROIT, Mich., May , 2017 — DayStar Books has launched a new website and companion eBook offering lesser known tips and techniques to consumers on factors affecting gardening prices entitled “Eastern Market Flower Deals.”


    Visit the new site at: http://eastern-market-flower-deals.daystarbooks.com/.

    Garden Plant Prices Rise – Plant Count Is Reduced!

    For the past forty years the greenhouse grower industry has been slowly downsizing the garden flat. Originally, a flat of bedding plants contained a total of 96 plants. Over time that plant count slowly reduced from 96 plants down to 54 plants per flat. Years following a steady decline continued from 48 to 36 plants—flat sizes vary across the state.

    Today most flats contain from 12 to 24 plants. It is common to find a measly six 4-inch pots priced at $10-12. Compare that to forty years ago, a flat of 96 plants cost $6.
