The Silk Painters of Atlanta group that I belong to meets tomorrow morning at our new venue, Chastain Art Center. Martha Andreatos called me the other day to see if I would help with the program: sun printing on silk. Well, I've done my fair share of that, but not recently and most of my pieces have been used in projects or given as gifts. I said I'd love to be a part, so I thought I'd better get busy and sun print something. Yesterday dawned rather yuckily and I was bemoaning that fact to my Mom, when suddenly the sun broke through! WooHoo!! So I ran out to the studio with a silk habotai scarf blank in hand, mixed up a batch of turquoisey looking paint, grabbed some leaves off of a nearby Winged Gum and let Mother Nature do her thing:
I'm rather pleased with the outcome!
My new "Freddy book" has really inspired me. I am off and running with some Freddy fish, and hope to have a picture for you in the next day or two.
