SILK

Painting on Silk

I simply love silk. It's a wonderful natural fabric I've used many times for sewing shirts, pants, dresses and much more. With time I discovered that it's a wonderful material to paint on. Hence many colorful scarves have been produced. One with a Vasarely-like pattern which was quite difficult to do. Others even done in an alhambra-tile-like style with intertwined patterns.
See some colorful scarves I have done.

Butterflies and more on Silk

The metamorphosis and the volatile easiness of butterflies are fascinating me. In this I have found a perfect subject for my silk paintings. Over the years I have done a whole series, even some dragonflies. To accomplish in a realistic manner is delicate because the color tends to spread easily on the fabric.

Other series included landscapes and paintings of Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy (true!) among others. Unfortunately only few of the early work has been "immortalized" in a photograph. Enjoy the ones that have been captured!
