A couple new pieces

I worked on these two pieces last weekend. I'm happy with the way that they turned out. The only downside is that they're printed on raw silk noil that I had left over from a workshop. It's nubby and rough and has a hand like a cheap, worn out gym towel. I don't have any idea what I'm going to do with this cloth other than look at it, since I can't stand to touch it. OK, I'm being overly dramatic. It's just not to my taste. Let's just say I won't be making boxer shorts out of it and leave it at that.

The piece on the left was printed in 2 layers, processed, discharged, then overdyed with golden yellow. The one on the right painted and screen printed in several layers, processed, then overdyed with golden yellow while stuffed in an old stocking to produce a few random highlights.

It rained here yesterday. Rained, and rained, and rained. We had 3" of standing water in the garage. Dan was not happy since that's where his newly acquired vintage Buick is living. The basement leaked a little, but the studio area is in a high spot so all's well on that front. I love this house, but they just didn't know much about waterproofing basements in 1941.

The sun is out today and I've got all sorts of plans. Let's all have a great Saturday and shake off the winter blahs.
