Screen printing

The flower shapes are real flowers from my windowbox. The first print of the six in the piece above used just the flowers, then I added some of their stems for subsequent prints. And rotated the screen.

In later prints, I added more stems and small leaves -- and, in between one piece and another, some of the elements fell off ... so others had to be added in:

In order to spend the morning printing, I had first of all to make space in the studio. So, last evening, heaps of fabric, UFOs, etc etc went willynilly into boxes, and the boxes went upstairs: out of sight, out of mind. Oh the glorious acres of floorspace, the completely empty surfaces! One day those boxes will need sorting (or tossing), but not yet.
