Re: Silk silk silk

Stunning as always. I really had to look at the green one, it looked like a trompe l'oeil painting of a scarf.

Re: Silk silk silk

Spectacular, Sigrun, A very impressive show case of your work. Presenting the scaves and throws gathered into the spirals, intentionally placed with ridges and folds is brilliant. Seeing this body of work, your essential images and the spirit of the culture really come through.

Re: Silk silk silk

Thank you Debby

I took part in an exhibition in North of Iceland that opened last Saturday. Here are some pictures from that day with me with my artwork and then with my yellow pin cushion that was part of my friends exhibit. She photographed 33 pin cushions and exhibited them. We where 39 textile artist in all exhibiting there. It was great.

Re: Silk silk silk

Here is a silk pillow, screen printed with glue then painted with glue and gold foil. The pattern I cut out with my Cricut machine that I love to bits.
The gold specks will fall off as they are not glued to the silk.

Very beautiful. Glad you are playing with silk again. I'm sure it makes you feel good to do so.

Re: Silk silk silk

Love this thread, Sigrun... so nice to see what you're up to along with the photos of your studio and stuff! I found myself a copy of one of the silk painting books you recommended to me (ages ago), but so far I'm still just working on cotton... very experimentally

Hope all is well with you & Finn
