Washing Out Fabrics and Thinking Ahead

After setting the fabric paint and washing out yesterday's fabrics, this is how they looked.

It got me thinking about what I'd like to do for the Strohl Gallery Shop at Chautauqua. I've been thinking about going back to some signature pieces but using my Controlled Breach technique. So I'm going to try a version of Joie de Vivre and Surely You Jest! (see printed, stitched and beaded versions below). I hope to "keep it simple", as Jennifer says. Maybe just a bit of stitching and a bit of beading (I will try to control myself!).

Tonight, in Exploring Surface Design we will be working with gelatin printing plates. Students in the fall and winter sessions made remarkable prints during this class. I can't wait to see what this semester's students create.
