Inspired by the spring I finished silk painting ready for steaming.
I have some new classes and more infor in my newsletter. Please sign up to keep in touch and find out about all the news. -I even have some family writers adding their creativity.
I love old buildings especially from the Deco era. These amazing paintings-not photographs are from hyper realist artist Davis Cone.
The old theaters are so beautiful.
My new summer classes are now on the schedule. These are offered at my home studio in Smithfield. Please let me know if you have any questions. Look forward to seeing everyone this year. Angelia

So much going on around here, life and work. I am working on new design ideas as well as techniques for fabric. There is a book that I always like to refer to when I feel stuck or need a little technique refresher, the book is “The Surface Designer’s Handbook” by Holly Brackmann. I recommend it to anyone who would like an overview in adding color and design to textiles. It offer some very good technical information with a lot of step by step and finished product photos.
I found these beautiful paintings over at Surface Design. It is so inspirational the different techniques and styles you find in art work. I have been working with fabrics for many years and with silk painting as one my main focus, these wonderful silk paintings presenta very different style, palette, and skill than the way I work. I wish I had time to go to the National Gallery of Art in Washington to see them in person.
If you would like to learn some more, my silk painting class is coming up. Check it out on the classes page.
I have a silk painting workshop coming up in Smithfield at the Art Center@319, contact them to register. This is a day long class at the new location of Isle of Wight Arts League we will learn and practice several techniques and complete several samples and a finished silk scarf. The class size is limited due to space, so sign up early to try out this beautiful art form. It has been a couple of years since I offered this class, so I look forward to working with everyone.
Fortunately I have had several sales of my silk painted scarves and shawls. While looking for color inspiration I found all these lovely items. Enjoy and have a great short week. The holidays are approaching ever more quckly.
