why I love to blog

Because I can share stuff like this piece on the right. Yep, yesterday's imposter tree made into a screen. It is printed with thickened dye onto paper towels which I used to mop up dye when I was doing my batik workshop with Els van Baarle last month. Good quality paper towels are wonderful to work with. Not to mention that they are inexpensive materials. Tonight is the first night since late May that I have actually unwound and spent time playing. It is very late and I have to get up early tomorrow, but I don't care. I needed this studio time like a sushi addict needs raw fish. These two pieces were done with dyes, paints and wax on mulberry paper. They both started out using the same element but took slightly different paths. I'll try to post tomorrow again. I'm taking my laptop to Lowell, MA when I teach this weekend and am hoping for WiFi so I can keep you up to date.
