Not for sale. This is a 35" x 35" silk for my new grandson's wall. I was going to paint a mural, but decided a silk hanging would be more appropriate. I have quotes on this, the border says,
"Winnie-the-Pooh, Winnie-the-Pooh, Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff. He's Winnie-the-Pooh, Winnie-the-Pooh, Willy, nilly, silly, old bear." Up in the sky it says, "...there is something you must always remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we're apart, I'll always be with you.

This silk was painted a few years ago and I just found the photo, so wanted to save it to the blog. It was painted on a brocade silk which already had a design in it, so it appears to be very complicated. 12x60" Sold (Oh, gee, I just found this again on my old blogs.) Guess I'll leave it. Sold.
This was a big project. I have silver resist and water based gutta in here. I am throwing away the water based resist. I really had to work to get the resist out after steaming. This is a Tangle with calligraphy, 35x35". $120.00 I have more photos if you'd like to see it better. Mr. Bear is the model for the top photo.
Yes, I made this silk close to Valentine's Day. I have been afraid to work with reds and pinks because they 'run'. But this one worked. How do you like my new silk model! He is a little too big, but still fun to play with. 12 x 60" $100.00
