Flowers, Fungi, and Flight - My First Solo Show


I am excited to announce that I am having my first solo art show!  


My exhibition has been titled "Flowers, Fungi, & Flight" and will include a variety of silk paintings as well as a great selection of  silk & resin sculptures.  

The exhibition is being held at the Pacific Rim Galleria at Bellewood. 

I will be demonstrating silk painting on April 8th, 2017 from 1pm-2pm and then the opening reception for the show follows immediately after the demonstration.  The opening reception will be from 2pm-4pm.   

The Pacific Rim Galleria is open to the public for the opening reception.  If you can't make the opening reception and want to see the exhibit - Bellewood welcomes visitors and asks that you call to schedule a viewing.

So You Want To Make Your Own Vertical Stovepipe Steamer?

I wrote a post on my other blog several years ago, but was just asked to create a new document for the Silk Painters group on Facebook.  So I thought I'd share it here!

Making your own Stovepipe Steamer is relatively easy to do and certainly cost effective!  To buy one new (and made specifically for silk paintings) will easily cost you over $1000 bucks.... but making one yourself can cost under $100 (mine was less than $50!).

I've had several people ask: Why do you want a Stovepipe Steamer?  Can't you just use a pot and steaming basket on your stove?
Both are good questions!
Yes you can use a pot and steaming basket on your stove.  But I personally, don't care for the idea of the chemicals/dyes/etc being in my kitchen. They are NOT good eats (to borrow from Alton Brown). Plus if you use a steaming basket in a pot, you have to constantly watch the water levels.  And you don't have a lot of space, which means you're probably only steaming 1 item at a time.  And …

So you're thinking of making your own World Globe Bowl or Lampshade?

Update To Testing Jacquard's New Water-based Resist

I was very excited to test out Jacquard's new Water-based Resist for silk painting.  I've used a variety of resists and each has their pluses and minuses... and this new resist is no different.
On the plus side:
It's premixed and already at a good consistency for applying with an applicator bottle. It drys fairly rapidlyIt repels dye very wellDye painted on top of the line doesn't soak throughOnce dried it can't be scrubbed awayIt is relatively inexpensive and easy to get a hold of (Dharma Trading carries it - as does at least one local store)Dye can be added to it to tint the resistBut there are some issues that I am having some challenges with!  So to be fair, on the negative side: It doesn't always flow out of the applicator nicely and I often get bigger globs (meaning I have a hard time getting nice, crisp edges on my lines!)Along with coming out of the applicator unevenly, it also tends to spread out rather than hold the line which also results in very uneve…
