Screen Printed Petroglyphs


This is a really good process for me when I have a lot of other things going on in my life.
I can do a layer, then it has to dry before I can do anything more.
My routine is to go to my studio first thing in the morning to do a single step. The next morning, I will be able to do the next step. I have a space where I can keep it set up all the time. Fabric needs to dry in horizontal position.

Here is the full view at this point. This piece is 36 x 48". The size I tend to use in the winter when I am using my basement wet studio. I can work larger in the summer when I can set up in the unheated workshop, but my studio printing work surface is 36 x 48"

I have at least one more layer to screen print. It soothes my soul, having something creative to do every day. It also gives me something (the next step) to contemplate until I am able to get back into the studio.
