It's been far too long since I've made a post. It feels like its been far too busy with not much to show for the time. I'm currently dying a few lots of fabric and as I wait for the washer to finish rising out my colors I thought it a prime time to hop on here and say a few words as to what I've been up to lately.
As I mentioned earlier I am dying some fabric which I had torn down to create small flags.I am going to be printing these with a stamp I designed and hand carved of a Windhorse (a common Tibetan prayer flag symbol of boundless basic goodness and buddhanature) in the style of a Dala Horse (a common Swedish trinket once traded for basic goods) to be used to make my own set of prayer flags as a gift of good fortune to friends and family. Now my plan currently is to roll up in black ink and print on white, yellow, red, green, and blue flags. Previously I had tried rolling up the stamp in PVA and then Elmers to try to do a resist (think like a basic batik), but it didn't really work out. This project has been my main focus lately.
I have a few prints up in a show over at the Radisson Hotel at Cross Keys in Baltimore. Reception date to come soon!
I started receiving acupuncture this month and I've really enjoyed it- and that's coming from the kid they used to have to hold down while I screamed bloody murder at the sight of a needle.
Right before Halloween, last month, I went up to the Hudson. Oh Hudson, always beautiful, always hard to leave behind. Many more photos up at flickr.
