A small collage of assorted solar prints. The tree and branches are painted and printed in the sun and the olive leaves are placed on wet solar paint and placed in the sun for printing. This is the second cloth piece using my experiments to create memories. I lived for several years in an agricultural area and the back roads led through miles of working orchards. The news spoke of the rains effect on the cherries, the bees related to almonds and reporting the walnut harvesting was big news. Ships from all over the world would dock in our port to pick up walnuts which was rather interesting to see the different flags
The sun has all but disappeared these past few days which can be typical for the summer. We have morning fog ...late afternoon low clouds and then the fog rolls back in the evening. They are promising more sunshine in the next couple of days and I will begin my experiments again.

15"x18",solar prints, assorted treated fabrics, machine and hand stitching. The side panel features a garden gate that I did way back when and now I am approaching the garden (ancient) once again. This time using the solar prints. Four prints here and not all sharp which for me gives a vague, lost, day dream, desert feel....but I could be wrong?! I have one more begun and then I will play in the sun for a few days and see what I can create.
