New Year: Peace Flags

An assortment of Peace Flags in process.

 It seems that I spent the week after Christmas in a bit of studio bathrooms, sorting through old jewelry, washing clothes... But yesterday, I was determined!

I've been wanting to finish up a set of Peace Flags, based on the ones I made this past fall. They are for an artists' trade. You can read more about the original flags here.

The backgrounds are hand painted and the hamsa hand design and Peace are printed using carved blocks.

I then went back in to paint a few details, including the whites of the eyes.

I made a number of extra flags...just in case!

Now I just have to finish stitching them up and they will be on their way...
