Daily Color: “June suns, you cannot store them

To warm the winter's cold...” ~A.E. Housman

For the solstice, I went heavy on the sparkle and shine.

Metallic threads and beads on cotton. The design is modified from a photo I took, then kaleidoscoped, altered, and printed on the fabric.

The original photo: closeup of my red/orange/hot pink striped Marimekko shirt.

The original photo, put through the kaleidoscope app on my phone.

I altered the colors slightly to increase the contrast for printing purposes. Even so, the image printed much more subtly on the fabric than it looks here.
