Playing with Color: Painting Silk

Mom has always been the color goddess. She just has a sense about those things. That’s why I was a little¬†apprehensive¬†trying my hand at silk painting, but with a little help I’m addicted. It wasn’t easy, but it was so much fun to see color combinations come to life on the silk, and worth the time it took for the amazing results. Here’s a little photo diary of the process:
