Feeling lost....

Feel like I have come to grips in my way with screen printing, dying, steaming. found my 'hand writing' even though if feel things have moved on ...Not to sure where to go now. Payed some cash for print trends 2014....the broken textures and the way they where created is very on trend not sure I like and also can't continue with fabrics that have no where to go, so need to do wall art or rethink all to gether.

Submission to Tigerprint

Has not been successful ... not surprised but disappointed. Employers are looking for artists who are different... have a different approach style and way of working , thats the thread out there ...but not as different as me / my work. Do not know where I fit in....

Fabrics after steaming......

Had some strange results, I think it maybe a combination of very old die powder, plus did not steam as long as should have because kitchen was over steamed.....and dripping need to get the lid fitting better. Not sure why on the grey fabric I have areas that almost look as if discharged , fabric colour not looking to good on this one but need to work back into. The brown I know is the blak not getting into fabric. Not sure I like for interior furnishing fabric and not sure weather to keep as one large piecex2....will keep you informed. Like the last fabric pic best....the last picture is on paper and a thought.... maybe I should do humming bird very large!!!! wing span the width of fabric!
