Blood Oranges, dyeing, new silkpaintings and blue sky!
When Tony and l were out shopping today, Tony remembered l hasd been looking for Blood Oranges and found some for me. The reason l wanted some, was l had seen some being used for dyeing and so l wanted to try some too! They are such an amazing colour and l have to admit that Tony and l kept two back for ourselves. Would you believe l picked the only one of the whole bag, that was NOT a Blood Orange!
I have also been Silkpainting today and yesterday to complete a project l am invoved in. This is one of the pieces, guttad and then painted.
Colour isn't quite right, as it is in artifical light but it gives you an idea, The next silk is of Fun Houses, guttad and then painted. I have a larger version of this painting but the background is red and l am told it looks as if the houses are on fire!
The next silk is one of many fishes l have completed. This one has been painted but l forgot to take an image of the finished piece.
Hope you all have had a nice enjoyable weekend and have had a good rest before Monday and work starts. One of the things that made today so great, was for the first time for nearly two weeks....drum roll...there was blue sky!
Blue skies always makes me smilex
