My favorite sea creatures are sea dragons. Yes, they are real. This 35" x 35" scarf has more on it than shown. It is very bright with gold resist lines. Looking at this silk just makes me feel contented. This one is sold, it was hard to say good-bye, but it went to a special lady.
My brother, Jack, walks near Occidental, CA with his hiking group every week. Then he gifts us with some of his awesome photos. I was inspired to group these together into a 12" x 60" silk scarf. This is traditional silk painting, I do not treat the silk first, so it is not like painting on canvas. Keeping it simple is important. Sold!
The latest rage in the calligraphy/art world is a design called Zentangles which is just doodling with an artistic eye. Usually they are done on a 3" x 3" square with a tiny pen. But it works for a silk design too. This scarf wears really well with a black outfit. Sold.
