I made this little 6x6 piece to trade with a wonderfully creative lady who just happens to live in Paris. Her work is very spiritual and full of texture and it truly inspires me. So, using some of her favorite colors, I tried to create something I am hoping she will enjoy looking at. On the front I used several colors of silk dupioni, metallic threads, Lumiere metallic paint, hand painted fabric, Austrian crystal beads and abalone shells. On the back I used hand "tea-dyed" linen and metallic threads. I love working in this scale as it lends itself to "risk taking" and experimentation without fear. I also love working with silk dupioni as it is a wonderful texture to paint on and holds inks and paints very well.
