Work in Paint, Thread, Wool & Silk

Last week I was sorting through one of the many baskets in my studio which holds my cotton and canvas and low and behold came across some silk I had forgotten about.   I immediately decided to give it a shot just so I could gauge the difference between it and my regular cotton.  The above is the result.  Once again, hard to see in a jpeg but the paint absolutely glistens on the silk and it was great to work with.  I've already got another piece stretched out and ready to begin which is what I'll work on today.
A bit of a departure for me but I'm playing around with a stormy sky over a field filled with yellow wildflowers.  I'm excited to begin so off to the studio............
