I have not posted images of any of my art since joining. But, I was so pleased with the look of these that I wanted to share.

These are 4x4's (inches) that are used as pages in a fat book. Recipients (the other swappers) collect the pages and put them together into whatever format they prefer. This is the orange page for a rainbow series. We are going through all the colors one swap at a time. At the end everyone will have a full complement of color themed pages to make a fat book, or whatever.


The background is habotai silk painted with acrylic mediums. I then incorporated embroidery and beads for detail. This is pretty typical of my mixed media work and dominates how I like to work currently. BTW, the painted silk is a dream to work with.

Why, thank you.
I don't keep any of what I make. Everything is made for swaps. But, I will share more. I'll make a point of posting the 4x4 Color Theme series when I finally have all the pages. I think that will be gorgeous.

Thank you.
The theme is "orange". I couldn't stray too far from the color, but adding a little analogous color was permissible. It enabled me to make something that looks more interesing than a strict limitation to ONLY orange. Besides, hue is relative--right?
The result reminds me of a tropical fruit salad. I refrained from stitching it in fruit. I thought that might take me too far in the direction of being trite.
