Work in progress: silk painting

Still working on this piece. Hand embroidery takes a long time.

Various pieces and types of dyed or painted silk were fused onto a background and being "painted" with embroidery thread. You'll have to click on the photo to see any details.

Hellene, your work is amazing.
Do you sell/exhibit anywhere?
if you do, will you please let me know. mlweaving at yahoo dot com
Thanks. (I've got kids at school - one in Athens, one in Columbia SC so getting to Atlanta to see an exhibit is not out of the question)

Thank you Marji for the nice comments. I emailed you. My niece goes to UGA in Athens.
