silk screened tote bags!

With help from my talented friend Rachel, I made these hand-silk-screened tote bags with one of my sketchbook drawings! The first of the three bags is available in the shop here!
There are also three limited edition signed and numbered prints on printmaking paper that I'll be adding next week.
I composited two sketchbook pages to make this design. One was the drawing that inspired my "Fodder for a mourning dove" painting.
The bags are really sturdy canvas and measure 13x13". It was so much fun to make them!
Happy Tuesday, everyone. :)
Love,
Amanda
