Took a little break from my regular painting today and did a two hour silk painting workshop with Olivia Waterman at Avenue West Gallery in Spokane. What fun!! I can see that I'll definitely be doing more of this in the future. We used special inks/dyes on stretched silk scarves. You have to work quickly and you don't have complete control...but that is the fun of it! Here is my practice piece "Mermaid's Secret" There are a couple of turtles in it as well, but it is too long and narrow to photograph well, so I just uploaded a detail shot.
