monsoon windowpane

on cotton 57 x 39cm

It feels good to come out of small period of 'no inspiration'

Autumn has comme suddenly to France, in a wave of cold rainy grey days
Sometimes I can spend hours standing at my window staring at at the rain fall..

This one made me realise (again) the limitations to the size of batik I can do at home.  And the fact that exhasperation leads to a 'wanting to get this over' mood; and the abandoning of the detailing I had wanted initially.
Until I can move to a big 'proper' studio (no more dyeing on my kitchen counter and sink); I think I'll go back to smaller sizesd batiks.  Who knows, it might end up being the incentive I need to decide to move.
