Painting for Lesbian Herstory Archives

I just mailed off this double-sided painting on very thin abaca I made in New jersey. This piece is a reenvisioning of a painting I did for The Making last year. I am very honored to be among many of my heroes participating in the first Art Benefit for the Lesbian Herstory Archives.

Relief Textile Printing for Upcoming Class

I made this simple repeat on two kinds of blue cloth as a sample for a textile printing class I am teaching at the AS220 printshop starting next Wednesday.

I think most people will be interested in Screenprinting, but I thought I would explore block printing on cloth. The matrix is a small piece of linoleum. It is printed in oil based ink. We will see how it washes.
