Painting on Silk

Gold resist outlines the shapes of brilliant color in this landscapes painted in silk dyes on a circlet of silk. Sunrise upon green fields, a pine tree, and a meadow scattered with white flowers promises a lovely day. Usually when I paint on fabric it is in creating accessories or garments, but occasionally it is a pleasure to do for purely decorative purposes.

Silk painting requires the lightest of touches. Lovely loose freehand works may be created without resists, but for this piece I chose to use a gold resist to highlight the golden light of sun in early morning. Perhaps the happy feeling of this little landscapes reflects my own joy in the beginning of day.
