Printing in My New Studio

Yesterday I printed fabric for a new series based on my October 2010 12 x 12 x 12, and also July 2007 12 x 12 x 12.

When I moved into my new studio a few weeks ago, I decided to attach a rope to two hooks that are directly across from each other, so I'd have a place to hang wet work. Having a clothesline was a good idea. This solution gives me about 16' of drying space.

In my in-home studio I usually used my bathroom shower curtain rod, which was pretty narrow. I think it's about 48" +/-. I've also been known to use an outdoor umbrella, a corner of my kitchen, a short hallway near my bedroom.

The clothesline rope needs a little tightening so it doesn't sag quite so much when there's weight on it, but I'm pleased.
