This is a silk painting. Silk dyes are used on silk after the design has been applied with resist to keep the dyes from spreading uncontrollably. It is a really fun medium and I love the effects I can get. I love the graphic quality and bright colors.

This is the first painting of my weekly painting series. I have just quit a watercolor class I had been taking and hope to strike out on my own. In the past, I have depended on teachers as crutches and think it is time to try to critique my own paintings and, through both experimentation and experience, improve all aspects of my artistic endeavors.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
