I will be demonstrating this weekend in Suffolk at the Art Gallery. It has been a while since I have painted, and in public. i look forward to seeing the other artist at work as well. Stop by if you are local.
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.
It seems like scarves are the thing for this season. They have been selling as quick as I can get them out there. I have a few left if anyone needs a great last minute gift, please contact me and I can get it out to you.
They have some at the Art Center @319 in Smithfield and Premier Gallery in Norfolk.
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.

I have been painting away, and we will be painting in my classes this coming week. Hope to have some new workshops in direct silk painting, screen printing collage in Smithfield at the Art Center @319. I will have my Etsy shop open again next week for all the scarves and shirts.
New pieced fabric shawls. Orders going out, but will have some available for the Holidays.
I really love this plaid fabric ruffle.
People have been “dyeing” all day.
Hand painting silk scarves to be shipped out.
I have been sewing and sewing lately, with all the bag orders. This week I had to start a new order for some scarves, so I am painting on silk again. It is something I really love, I never realized how relaxing it is for me. This is an artist I have admired for many years Kerr Grabrowski. She uses a technique disconstructed screen printing, to create the layered affect.
A working weekend for me, and student in the studio next week. Always a fun time.
