I saw some paintings in an office building that I thought looked like a way I would like to paint with my dyes. Plus, there were some wonderful and playful motifs on the top surface. So I drew some up and made a new batch of screens, plus one stamp that I carved. So fun.
And to go with those screens some new silhouettes. And sack-y dolman dress with-pockets! Playing still with the vest, long, slim including pockets, plus a boxy vest with a pert collar and lapels, and of course pockets!
Oh, those beautiful Re-dos! Taking them apart, screening them and re-combining them. Never know what you’re going to get. Keeps it fresh!
