At Christmas, my family was here and my grandson saw a silk on the stretcher. I had just painted a background that, to me, looked like a sunset. He saw a very large piece of bacon. After he said that that is all I could see too. So I added some quills, the alphabet, and finally a dark red on top with salt.
It now can be worn with my new red jacket. 11x60" Sold.
For Christmas, Tauni gave me this dressy dark red, metallic jacket. I decided I would like a silk to go with it. The dark red was a real challenge, but I think this silk is complementary. I tried to keep it simple (for me). 11x 60" NFS at this time.
My career involved two creative passions: teaching and art. Both passions have enabled me to create. My passion is an all-encompassing one in relation to teaching and art. Sometimes I am consumed by the need to create. A pencil, a brush or a pen in my hand brings me a feeling of contentment.
