another print day. i spent forever on this one. in fact, i couldn't figure out why the dog kept coming in and looking at me longingly. then i realized i was almost 2 hours late in feeding him. he hates to come into my studio because of the laminate flooring. i think he feels like he's going to slip or something...or maybe it's that hollow sound? anyway, i got lost in the creative process and worked for hours uninterrupted. it was heaven.
i like the piece so far, but think i will work a bit on the face. it feels a bit unlike the rest of the print, so i will wait a few days for it to dry and then do a little overprinting.
this is based loosely on a photo of my dad in the navy during WWII. i still have that wool jumper, and actually used to wear it sometimes. it looked great with a long grey shirt. maybe i'll dig it out of storage and try it on again! hopefully it still fits. my dad was a very small man back then. in fact, he still is!!
