Printing on Fabric

I have been working this past week on transferring some of the things I have learned to printing on a new substrate: canvas. These may eventually show up on some clothing if things go well.
This is a lightweight canvas that I am printing on here. It holds up very well to the cyanotype process. I am finding that some images that didn’t work as cyanotype prints on traditional papers, seem to be much more pleasing on the canvas. This is one of my most popular images, taking on a whole different mood when printed this way.

St. Lukas Church

My uncle’s 70th birthday was this past weekend and I travelled to Dayton to share the special day with him. More than a hundred of his friends were on hand to celebrate with him, and his neighbors Ruth and Harry were kind enough to open up their home for the event. Their home is quite a spectacular place, having been created from a turn of the century church in the St. Anne’s Hill historic district. It was grey and flurrying this morning, but I managed to capture a few shots of the church that I liked. This is my favorite of the bunch.

St. Anne’s Hill – Dayton, OH

I was visiting my uncle in Dayton this past weekend and had a free hour to walk around the lovely historic district where he lives. Most of the homes in the district have been restored, but there are still a few that have that “well used” look. I’d like to spend much more time exploring this neighborhood, especially when the light is better than it was this morning.

Hello world!

This is my very first blog post. ¬†As soon as I acquire a basic understanding about how all this works, I’ll be using this blog to present new work, news, or perhaps thoughts on older work that I’ve never shown on my website.
