Spring Mix

detail view with silver threads
This is another demo of the faux batik method I showed my Park Hill class last week.  I just love that Thai Metallic Thread Unryu paper.  The threads are very thin, so you don't notice them until you move by the painting and you see glints of light.

Last Sunday was the big Gala for the Painted Violin benefiting the Denver Young Artists Orchestra.  I am very happy to report that the violin I painted sold for $1000 !

I had hoped it would go up for auction, but someone bought it for full asking price ahead of time - a smart move because Who knows how much they would have gotten for it if auctioned.

It was a fantastic fundraiser, and I'm happy to have been a 
part of it.

love those florals, those glints of gold would just bekon a closer look.
Wise buyer, nabbing it before anyone else got a shot at your beautiful violin!

Congrats on the Violin sale. That was a beautiful way to engage the idea.
