So this commission I took on is for 50 scarves... They have to be yellow and they all have to have the same four motifs on them - but beyond that, it's whatever I feel like printing. No two are alike: that would be IMPOSSIBLE. And I would bore myself to death.
These four are left from yesterday; I couldn't finish them till today. Now these four are home with me so I can steam them and there are three more on the table to finish tomorrow (if it doesn't snow too much). It is slow going because I can't do production - bing, bing, bing. I much prefer printing my own scarves, even though they are no less time consuming.
I was in the studio from about 10 this morning till almost 6 but didn't get that many scarves printed. First of all, a number of my screens are wearing out from intense use, or because they are 10 years old -- so I had to make new ones. That took time. Then, I was out of print paste so I had to make more. And had to mix more colors - you know how it goes. By the time I actually got down to printing, it was afternoon.
My own work is in my sewing room, waiting patiently for me to get to it. Not tonight.
