52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 39

Hand Painting Textiles

One of the best surprises I had while working on my textiles books was the opportunity to hand paint fabrics.
For me, the best fabrics to paint are cottons and linens.  I really like handwoven linens the best, however, they are expensive and hard to find.   The ones I used are from a trip to a small town in Germany (near Kassel).
The above photo is my work station after a good day painting.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
