More Columbine Prints

The weather here in PA has been just outstanding, and I'm busy making prints and painting fabric. I made a few more cyanotypes for the Columbine quilt; above is a shot of the plant material on the treated fabric, out in the sun for a timed exposure. You can see a reflection of the nearby zelkova tree, and my own reflection on the left, in the glass cover sheet.
And above is a partial view of the finished print. It's on a silk/cotton blend with a lovely sheen. The earlier prints captured the flowers in bloom, while these have the seed capsules.
I'm working on four large projects more or less simultaneously right now and having an enormous amount of fun in the process. These long days are very energizing.
