Last weekend I had a talk and exhibition at the library it was a great opportunity for me to hang my batiks and photograph them.
I’m not a traditional batik artist, I use melted crayons for wax resist which is enhanced by the fabric dye. During the summer and early fall I spend a lot of time outdoors painting coloured wax onto cotton sheets.
One King size sheet (or queen size) cut in half will make two panels. The panels tell a story.
SPRING – the two purple/pink dyed ones have a liner or backing because they hand in front of my well lit french doors, they look like stain glass during the sunset hours. You may notice the threads and birds those details are for the next blogs.
FALL – the two yellow, orange and red panels with blue bottom. Yellow crayons aren’t as abundant as the cool blues and greens but they do make a stunning appearance. The threads and crows are the details that will be introduced next blog.
NIGHT GALAXY – two dark panels that hang like a canape. A flash light and good book at bedtime will be a relaxed night adventure for kids young and old.
