12" Squares


There are a lot of calls for entry with a size of 12" square.
This is a rather challenging shape and size for me.
I have been trying to focus on using some of my favorite surface design fabrics
for some smaller pieces in this size.

The top piece is screen printed with a digital photo of cottonwood trees in the Pryor Mountains taken during a hike last fall. The red and yellow fabric was a deconstructed screen print, and the border was hand dyed.

This bottom piece is rust dyed fabric that has been screen printed with a Thermofax screen from a digital photo of petroglyphs at Painted Desert National Park in Arizona. The border fabric is hand dyed and block printed with a handcut block.

Beautiful!
I especially like the second one.

This time I like the second one best. Petroglyphs speak to me. These look like ancient graffiti.
