These 2 paintings are all about texture, texture for the feathers on the birds, texture for the leaves, textures of grass. It was fun to paint these as the process involves painting freely and loosely.

Bold Yellow Roses

Bold yellow roses
large acrylic on canvas
18" x 24'

This painting is done from a photo taken when i was gallery sitting at the ALL gallery. It was a slow day at the gallery and this beautiful bouquet of yellow roses with complementary purple leaves was sitting on the table. It is a simple subject so i wanted to paint it in a bold modern style- i think i achieved my goal!
I started with a cad red wash, did my drawing, then began painting letting the red show thru.

Making Silk Scarves

100% Silk Scarves
15" x 60"
$30 each
Spent New Year's day making hand painted silk scarves. They will be available for sale at the upcoming Spring floral Show at the CCA.
Hand painted silk scarves are the perfect accessories for spring. They are light, versatile, and add a splash of color to your wardrobe.They also make beautiful gifts, each scarf is like a piece of jewelery.
I wanted the scarves to be soft and free flowing based on a feeling of water, space and flower gardens. So instead of the traditional gutta resist technique, I made my scarves using a "modern" version of the ancient silk dying Shibori technique.  
Shibori (絞り染め Shiborizome?) is a Japanese term for several methods of cloth dyeing with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing it, or capping. This method is also known as tie dye.
Once i laid out the basic design using Shibori i used other colors, floral designs and stamps to  further enhance the beauty of each individual scarf.
