Ah, first the other stuff. I did spend a few hours in The Studio this week. I printed some fabrics, of which this is one smidgen. I'm really happy with this result and I expect that someday I may even find a use for it . For those of you who print fabric - (and there are more and more of us who are either doing it or want to do it) - are you usually printing with a particular piece in mind that you want it for?
Are you filling in where you need something and don't have the right piece? Or do you just print and print and print and collect an inventory, from which you know at some point you will pull enough to make a piece that works?
Here is a detail of a piece I printed the other day that I would love to duplicate, but can't.
This texture is a complete suprise and was an unintended result of my screening process with a flour paste resist. Very cool. Someday it will show up in a piece of my work.
In the meantime, enough for now. I had a busy day with the grands at the Liberty Science Center and I am plum tuckered. I will get to the thing on the wall tomorrow.
