I dyed some fabric with Rit tangerine, let it dry, heat set, and went from there. Since the theme is solar power I wanted a sun-colored base. I then did some screen printing and stenciling to add interest and contrast. Now I have to figure out how I want to piece the sun.

Do I EVER get tired of birds? Not in my artwork, not in real life on our walks, not ever, ever ever. These are done on fabric, and emphasized with some Caran de Ache water soluble crayons which give a watercolor-y look but keep the colors in place. After that, I think I'll add some thermofax printing to the background to make it more interesting, and some stitching to highlight lines I like.
