Octoprinting in the garden

Octopi have very dainty tentacles which causes them to dry quickly and not print with the first go around.  Here I am enhancing the tentacles so they look more graceful.  For some reason I don't mind painting on the T-shirts if they don't print perfectly......the gyotaku are another story.  Those I pull as pure prints.  There are three new black ones for the show this weekend in Coupeville...they turned out very nice!!  I love the octopi T-shirts and am interested in seeing if anyone else does..this is their test market.  I'll have several new things that haven't been seen before..I had to do something as all the big paintings are in San Francisco.

It was a record hot day today, but I was out early under my umbrella surrounded by my dahlias!!!  They are beautuful!!
