dodging raindrops in the Press Steet Gardens


the second session in New Orleans was held in the Press Street Gardens
an area of lush abundance managed by Margee Green
and her assistant Elliot 

the colours of the first dyepot were luscious
and things just kept getting better



rain blessed us every day
but despite being soaked everybody remained cheerful
and produced beautiful work


i spent my last day in New Orleans at work in the garden
setting up a new project that will carry me through until 2018
- more of that in a future post
for now i have dragged myself away from Louisiana
and am somewhere in Colorado
en route to Canada

  1. Press Street has been done proud by such AMAZING color. Am still stuck on idea that N'orleans is blessed with water composite unlike others ... such sublime results. So many beauties here!

    1. You're spot on there Christi. New Orleans water has a magic all its own. And that eucalyptus was locally grown which is very fine too - Colour not adversely impacted by climate or soil

    1. Is a telegraph pole in the foreground that has had a lot of staples in it over the years. I love the surface texture

    2. Is there the possibility of rust dying around that pole?

  7. Beautifully fluid colours and designs...the influence of the rain perhaps?

    1. the humidity in the air, picked up by the cloth DOES contribute to the printed outcome :-)
