All Finished

Another good day of printing has delivered a nice finished product.  Got the last color on just before a big thunder storm came through and temporarily knocked out the power.  I'm hearing more rumblings in the distance so I think I'll say goodbye.

A Terrific Day of Printing

A very productive day of printing today has yielded this image so far.  Will cut more stencils tonight and plan for tomorrow being another great day of printing.  Hope you'll stay tuned and watch further developments

Making Lots of Progress

Got lots of stencils cut and now am enjoying a "print-a-thon".  Cranked up the air conditioner, turned on the ventilation van and will be getting a lot accomplished in the next two days.
Stay tuned.

New Project Underway

Been cutting stencils for a while on this new project which is a lovely cabin on the Chesapeake Bay community of Scientists Cliffs.  Today was the perfect day to begin.  I printed the sky as a blend and it came out perfectly.  This involves putting two different shades of the same color on the screen at the same time and blending them as the squeege is pulled to achieve the fade effect you see.  A little tricky but well worth the extra time investment.
I'll post tomorrow and next week too as this piece will develop very quickly.  Hope you'll plan to check back and see this print take form.

I'll be in Old Town Alexandria this Saturday, participating in the King Street Festival (so named  because it stretches from Washington Street to the Potomac River on both sides of King Street.  Come early and park in one of the public lots.  I'll look for you on Saturday or Sunday.
