Catalpa leave on wool/silk.
Eco printing with leaves from some of the plants in my yard, dyed in a bath with Cleveland black walnuts that I saved and have had in my freezer since last fall. Plus domestic eucalyptus that I purchased at Trader Joe's. To be sure, I do like to use as many plants from my own neck of the woods as possible, but sometimes, the floral dept. at TJ's pulls me in to it's discounted floral prices and succumb to spending $2.99 USD for a bunch of lovely leaves.
ANSWER TO A QUERY
I received an email this week from a woman named Jayne W. regarding whether I'd be hosting any natural dyeing/eco printing workshops in the future. For a brief 2 seconds I thought about creating a workshop and inviting India Flint back to Cleveland and/or a few other artist-friends who I know can teach a dye class. Then I thought, hold on...I'm making art right now, therefore the answer is no.
I sent a reply to her but it bounced back to me.
This is a response to Jayne and anyone else interested in a such a workshop.
Jayne, I wish I could set up a session, knowing me, I'd jump right into it (again).Currently my head is set on creating a solid body of work. I don't have plans to create an event at this time. Thank you for visiting my blog and for writing.
And thank you for visiting my site everyone. This is my favorite time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning FALL. I hope you're loving life and making something good today!
