Painting Fabric

Today we painted fabric across the alley from the shop. There were all kinds of things going on, so only three people showed up to paint with me, but we had fun. We did neglect to check the weather forecast, and didn't see that a gale force wind was planning to come through Greybull. We started at 1pm, during the hottest part of the day, but luckily there is a wonderful big shade tree where we set up.
We got a couple pieces painted before the sun went away, the wind came up, the sky turned black, a little rain came down, and just about the time we got everything back into the shop, the sun came back out and the wind died. Oh, well, we'll try again next time.

I had to chase my best one down, the wind decided it belonged in Nebraska.

Sherry Fink did some on frames the Fourth of July, and showed them at guild. So I wanted to try doing them on frames. I really like some of the effects, but none of ours looked like hers. These are mine, and Jans are below.

I didn't get pictures of Marquerite's or Merina's, because of the wind - they put them away before I remembered I was going to take pictures.
Anyway, we're going to do it again after the fair, about the second Saturday in August. If anyone wants to come, its free, just bring white fabric. I've got the paint and frames and stuff.

I always wonder what it's like in Bali where they do yardage at a time. They must be very good at predicting the weather. If I could take any trip I wanted it would be to Bali to see them make batiks.
