Flamin' Galah






I finally got round to printing the galah stencil I made from the museum drawings from last week. I wanted to add some pink to it and so printed a circle of print first and then the black galah over the top. I've mounted it onto a canvas frame that is 40cm by 40cm and it is printed onto a thick white canvas.





I've got 3 more birds including a huge lyrebird to cut out for some more prints which I will be stretching onto canvas frames. I want to do some that are multicoloured prints specifically for stretching to hang as artworks. I will be taking the new stretched fabrics to Rose Street this Saturday, the weather is going to be pretty horrid with wind and rain so I am hoping that the reports are all wrong and it is sunny and warm with no wind. Cross your fingers!

I have learned that I block things from my memory and, pop, I see things and they're back. I cut a screen for a Girl Guide badge design of a galah years and years ago. I remember the unit out past Dubbo was still using it because I saw a girl wearing the design years later. I must see whether I kept the original. I cut it out of the plastic used to divide paper in ringbinder folders. Worked a treat. Was only about 20cm deep too. I must have had a lot of patience for cutting fine lines back then. Your galah looks great. I like the pink circle. Exactly the right colour.

The circle of pink is very cool and very different. It will sell.

Sigh, sunny and warm! Good luck though..

I love the sharpness in the lines of the stencil as compared to the soft, subtle tone of the pink.. it's great!
