Too pretty to part with..


There are a select few pieces that I might not be able to part with. 

"Midnight Roses" is one of these silk paintings that fall into this category.  This was my first long scarf painting, and I had been dreaming and sketching wonderful linear rose patterns over and over again for months (and really years now that I think about it).  I used a frame that I actually built myself under Olivia Batchelder's supervision, in her Laguna studio, of course.  

Until that moment in time, I only had the little square frames to work with, and therefore was limited to, well, little squares.  Due to this and spacing, I had been holding back for so long, and finally FINALLY was free to paint the whole length of a long silk scarf!

This weekend, I am going to start my Rose series - all different shades, colors, and different swirly designs will fill the afternoons... roses, roses, and more roses.. I'm so excited!  and well.. I suppose I'll have to brace myself for parting with SOME of them...

These are so beautiful. I'd love to have these as curtains for my office. They'd be so bright and cheery.

Wow! Thank you - never thought of painting silk curtains before, but I guess anything is possible if I had a big enough frame.. sigh.. someday!
