I've been waiting all winter to put my snowshoes on and head to the "outback". I always feel like a kid again, exploring nature at its best. This excursion was no exception. I went from windy hillsides to quiet enclaves, all the while toasty warm from the physical exertion. The sun would shine with promise and then disappear to create a wild, ominous atmosphere. Of course the whole time I knew I was just a short distance away from home and a hot cup of coffee. But it was still the perfect adventure.
I have always said the perfect day for me is a combination of exercise, creativity, relaxation and a good book or movie. So when I returned from my walk, I headed into my studio. Remember my window shades? Well I decided to screen print and stencil some designs on them. It was great fun and I really love the results.
The shades are just velcroed to the glass, so I can take them down at anytime with no difficulty or unsightly mess. The whole printing experience was so much fun that I decided to treat myself to a new toy, a thermofax machine. It promises to be lots of fun, an easy way of making silk screens for more printing projects. So I'll be sharing all that with you soon. Hope you had a perfect day too!
