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...
