Noodling around

Almost 30 years ago, I taught myself silk painting. It’s great fun, except for the fact of how unforgiving it is–make just one mistake and often the whole piece is ruined. Over the years, I’ve saved my mistakes, assuming I’d find a use for them some day. Just last week I experimented until I figured out how to work them into pieced art. What you see below is the rough, experimental version. More to come!

What’s old is…

...new again, like the art of silk painting. I lost interest in it for awhile, but when my friend Kim Stubbs was in my studio last year, she wanted a lesson. Her enthusiasm reignited mine and I’ve started painting again. This is a piece from a few years ago, inspired by the morning glory vine that threatened to take over my back yard. I’ll post my new paintings as they develop.
