It's like that
My arch enemy is depression. And guess what - I am going to kick its ass.
I spent a few hours last night at Muse in West Seattle where Thea Wolfe had several ink on paper and acrylic on canvas pieces displayed. I'll have to double check what the acrylics were done on. The smoothness of the surfaces make me think they might have been on panel. Thea is so amazing with a brush that I only know they're acrylics because I manage the art store she buys her supplies at and I frequently ring her up, however the pieces could just as well be oils as far as one could tell. On my way to the gallery I stopped off at Artist & Craftsman where Steve Veatch and I stacked his paintings which had been up on display in the store, into the Subaru, He and I then picked up Fish at his place, dropped the art off at Steve's then headed out over the West Seattle bridge. Muse sits right at the bottom of the Delridge exit and it's a great space for art, Thea's works are incredible and beautiful to have finally experienced up close. http://www.theawolfe.com
Been doing some silk screening
Working on printing t-shirts with the old rabbit skeleton design by Nicholas Bross. I am using decolorant instead of ink. What it does is remove color from fabric, but it has no bleach content. So it does not damage fabric. After the decolorant dries for a few minutes, an iron placed on top of the design makes the fabric's color vanish. We are all familiar with the stiffness of an ink print on a t-shirt. Not only does this stuff remove the shirt's color where you print your design, you can tint the decolorant with some silk screen ink to lay down a color while simultaneously removing the dye and the result is a much softer printed design. I haven't done the tinting thing yet but I have pulled a few prints on T-shirts.
