While I was organizing my desk at the studio I came across Luca's baby announcement. He's so big now... Almost 3 years since he zoomed into our lives - doesn't even look like the same kid. Antonio & I silk screened the announcements on solid cards we got a paper source. This was a fun mommy, daddy activity.
We had a hard time finding something we liked so we made them. I loved all his hair when he was born, he looked like a little baby bird. How time flies!
I love this time of year. (minus my sweet Luca's allergies, he's allergic to tree pollen & we're wondering when we'll see his dark brown eyes again?...) I look out my window at the studio & all the trees are covered in a lacy green. Pretty but with his spring allergies it doesn't look quite the same. We have some exciting studio meetings coming up. I'm nervous & excited all at once. As an artist you end up putting so much of yourself in your work. You put yourself out there in the world & believe there's an audience for your vision. There's a sort of beautiful freedom in this- taking a chance means you're ready to fly.
About a year ago we invested in a fancy large format printer that is able to print on fabric. I'm thinking of printing these dots on dark pink & hanging them somewhere (home or studio) We've been so busy with projects that we haven't spent much time exploring all the things the new printer can do. Wish I had capabilities to make my own rugs I think this would be great as a large wool floor rug. Too many ideas in my head. I'm post some of my experiments printing on fabric in the near future.
