Love Is a Rainbow of Chaos

11"x 60" silk inspired by the FDL Visual Artist group exhibit for the play 'RENT'.  The title is written on the whole silk with the lettering creating the visual spaces for the rainbow of colors.  This is a very vivid silk scarf.  Sold

Big Butterfly

35" x 35" Quillian butterfly.  Abstract green/blue background, writing on the border, a nice touch of color to add to your wall.  Traded to a special lady.

Fire-breathing Dragons II

This is the second in the series of fire-breathing dragons.  The top photo shows the true colors, the detail pic is washed out.  Sorry!  I just love doing lots of details on my silks and the resists allow that plus I love to do lots of color blending and mixing.  No color is straight from the bottle.  That makes the silk richer.  The other silk in this series is sold as is this one.

Flowers in the Dark

July, 2012 11"x"60" fun silk.  Late one evening I started doodling and drew some basic flowers.  Then I decided that I wanted to have a dark background.  The contrast is very nice.  Sold

Georgia O'Keeffe Quotes

This is a 35" x 35" silk that was inspired by an assignment by our FdL Visual Artist Group for the Georgia O'Keeffe themed art show in July, 2012.  Written across the whole scarf are many quotes by Georgia. I wanted to have flowing colors and quotes from Georgia.  She was a unique person with her own philosophy and chose to do her art 'her' way. Sold.  I do have a calligraphy piece full of Georgia O'Keeffe quotes, though.

Abstract Sunset

This is a 35"x 35" silk.  I started with a different plan, a commission from someone, and did not match the original layout, so I threw the silk (unsteamed) into the washing machine.  I am amazed at the amount of dye that remained in the silk after the wash.  Then I began to draw the landscape with my resist and this is the end result.  It really is powerful and has a written boarder.  Sold
