This redheaded musician is hand painted on silk habotai with silk dye.

The creation of this original silk painting included several steps.

First, I made the sketch, then transferred it onto silk. Then, I outlined the design with resist. Next, I painted the picture with fabric dyes. The final step is steaming process.
Steaming is necessary to set the dyes and make them permanent. I steam not only my wearable items, but wall hangings as well. It makes them sun tolerant and protected from humidity.
The colors are very strong and do not fade like water colors.

The silk is stretched onto acid free canvas.

Size 30″/30″
The wire is attached on the back to hang it.
The sides are painted, so a frame is not necessary.

You can buy a print of “The Song Of Youth” as well.
