More silk paintings in progress.

 Today got to work a bit more on my silks.
 Finished my rose painting (below). Now it waiting to be steamed.
Spent some time working on design of purple irises
for another scarf. Made it work and even blocked whole thing to the silk.
Tomorrow - steaming of roses and finishing of blocking those irises.
Looking forward to it... Should be very exiting!

"Fire and Ice", work in project.

Last week was busy and I didn't work much on any of my art projects.
However, now I'm back to another silk painting.
I call it :"Fire and Ice", as it is going to be a portrait of white and red rose.
It is still in progress, about half-way done.  I think I'm just going to frame this one.

Stay tuned! 
Next week I'm going to post finished painting.

"Spring Joy". Silk painting.

 My latest art project was another painting on silk.
I wanted to make something very different from just regular
"wall-hanging" piece of art, therefore I made it
to be wearable one.
I made one of my schnauzer-dog into my model
and added some bright tulips from the last spring photoshoot.
I love my dogs and I love my flowers!...
I combined both and got beautiful idea for this piece
what I called "Spring Joy".

 This is a hand-painted with silk dyes one-of-a-kind scarf
decorated with spring blooms and pictures of dogs.
It is finished now and I only have to steam it in a day or two to set the colors.

I'm ready for the next project and ready for spring!

"Pure Innocence", silk painting.

"Pure Innocence", 12 x 9", 
Silk, dyes.

I wanted to try it for a while, but never did...
Last month  I got bitten by creativity and finally purchased
modest set of American-made silk dyes and some fabric
to test it on... Plus of course some chemicals...
This is my #1 try out on silk painting. 
Model for the "Innocence" was our Fox Terrier "Sasha",
who being a Fox Terrier is anything, but "innocent".
I enjoyed my painting session, no pressure of any sort,
just do it and let see what happens... 
I still need to "fix" those dyes, so piece will be washable.
Didn't get a chance to do that yet.
Hopefully that will work out well....
Mean while I'm thinking of starting next piece.
