Sneezing

Have to show you what I did last night. When my husband is asleep, I sneek into my studio and paint. Listening to music, turned low; jazz, mostly; or jefferson airplane. This time I got inspired by a stone carving from China which is at least 3000 years old. I painted it on a cotton/linen fabric.
This morning, I thought of stenciling to multiply my dragons. Lino cutting was very satisfying, but the printing was not. This textile paint is not made for printing, I guess. I cut this stencil and stabilized it by soaking the paper with shellac. The result is a lot more satisfying than printing. The color can be variegated just as well, and the silhouette is nice and crisp. Now I have to put on my clothes, I'm still in my nighty, and get some breakfast.

Once again a new interesting project. I love the way You go further and devellop a theme. The picture of the stencil itself is a piece of art, with the battered working table showing through the holes.

This turned out great, satisfying indeed!

Apparently Jefferson Airplane and jazz are both good inspirations for art!

I like the shifting colors in the piece at top, in fact I think I associate it with some of Heike's work, it is immanent,liminal,transitional - the nature of the design is also circular, so one can't settle. More like a question than a statement.

'satisfying' is such a good word to describe the feeling we get when our work and tools turn out the way we hope they will. I love your stencil! Well done!! Hope your breakfast was good.
