First snow

We had our first snow yesterday night. Not much, but enough to make the roads a bit slippery, especially this morning.
I did some more calligraphy exercises the other day. I'm using Japanese brushes and sumi (ink).
The idea was to use these as designs for screenprinting. First I made a very small screen. I wanted to see how well this ink is burning the plastic coating of the mesh.
Then I prepared some larger screens. This is some test printing using fabric paint.
Now, I need to print more fabric.

That repeated character is just lovely! What does it mean? Or do I have to wait for the reveal to find out?

Oh, Francoise, this is going to be wonderful! Love that you are learning calligraphy and making your own fabric designs at the same time.

And the snow is so beautiful!

Oh no I hope we don't get it next.
I love your prints with this Japanese lettering it's so effective with the colours you've chosen.
