WIP another peony pillow







After trying to get my email, my website, my computer to fix for hours I gave up, ate dinner, and worked on this piece to de-stress. It's almost done, just the background needs dye. It's a 14"x14" tiny little pillow cushion. I've been painting it for maybe over 4 hours. That's not including the time I spent applying the gutta resist. Hmmm.....these take a long time, but it was so much fun. Much more fun than trying to get my computer to work.

Wow! Your silk painting is absolutely beautiful!! Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, If you have not done watercolor before, I would think that this would go hand and hand, give it a try!

Thanks Krista! My watercolor students say that silk dye painting is very similar, too. Right now, I'm soooo addicted to the silk, it may be a while before trying the watercolors -- although I have a stack of water color paper and the paints! Now why did I buy these and when did I buy these???? Strange...
