Back to the Tropics

First print for 2010 - the Fan Palm (Licuala ramsayi)
I love how the different texture of the fabrics influences the print.




This is a tree of lowland wet tropics (rainforest) now under threat from land clearing. The Licuala Fan Palm walk at Mission Beach has some spectacular examples which hopefully expose lots of visitors to the beauty of this palm and help its preservation (photo from http://www.missionbeachinfo.com/).



Printing in my Derek of New Zealand (!) mad sheep Christmas present apron - thanks Judith Smiley
