A Small Wholecloth Piece

One piece that didn’t make it into any previous post:

Nature Print

The first layer of this piece was done about a year ago. I did a shibori dye and I think I used Dye-Na-Flow. This time, I overprinted it using screen print ink with some nature printing, that is, I inked up the leaves and pressed them onto the fabric to make the impressions.


It seems a bit overdone right now, but it’s all part of the process.  Maybe I’ll go back in with some discharge dye on this one.  Then again, I don’t know if screen print ink will discharge!?

About turtlemoonimpressions

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

    I think you need to look at as part of a larger whole. There are some very nice parts there!
