if you sprinkle when you tinkle...

on thursday while o-o was playing an epic game of 'babies' at nursery with l-man, and wee baby j was taking a well earned nap, i saw a window of opportunity for a spot of printmaking. i have learnt from bitter experience to ALWAYS change into my printmaking jeans before getting to work in the studio, otherwise, before you know it you have an entire wardrobe of paint splattered printmaking clothes. i rather like the inky daubs on the denim, abstract art!
while i was working i saw many fab potential photos but alas, the lack of an extra pair of hands meant i could not snap them. here's my screen washout  bathtub. i love the juxtaposition of items representing my two roles here; printmaking paraphernalia and a big ol' bag of bath toys...
i printed the 'if you sprinkle when you tinkle' print in three colours; blue...

(almost) black...

and to match the grout in the bathrooms of all those people who, like us, have white metro tiles and grey grout, a nice shade of grey.
 here's a close up of the print in grey...
and here it is framed in an ikea ribba frame...
and again with the bathroom triffid which seems very happy in my care and has produced lots of new leaves and several shoots since it's been living with us.
you can buy the prints in my etsy and folksy shops. i think they'd make a nice present for a mother of boys (solidarity!), a woman in a male dominated household or the careless wee-er in your life (father's day's coming up).
