I like to warm up to batik sessions with free form psychedelic sketches.  One of my favorites to do is the old stand by, the peace symbol.  Here are a collection of various ones through time, starting with two hemp shirts.  Most of these images are a burning sun type peace symbols.  When there is peace, there is always time to solve problems.

A light weight hemp shirt with a lovely peace symbol blazing upon it.

Backside of a shirt with signature.

 

peace4

A beautiful electric blue sun peace symbol on a plum background.

 

peace5

Pretty in Pink.

 

peace6

A three color overlay shirt starting with yellow, over-dyed with red, and then over-dyed again with magenta. The red dramatically changes the final color of the magenta.

 

peace7

Another shirt that was completely covered with wax and then pounded full of crackles to produce a lovely psychedelic effect.

A batik/tye-dye combo. One of my first.

A late arrival. Peace man.
