Demonstrating Silk Painting at a show

I just completed 3 weeks of shows as a vendor with my artwork-the portraits, the abstract horses and my silk scarves. I had a small set up with one of my stretcher frames for the silk scarves and worked for hours each day making scarves. It was an awesome experience to have people buying the silk scarves even before I had completed them!

Here’s looking at you!

So what went out the door? Well a slew of custom orders will be going out the door but below are different examples of what people liked at the show…horses of course, followed by dogs, followed by flowers and then…so many different choices including the abstract designs with no particular design on them!

The dog above was for a vendor whose best friend loves to walk her dog…but he’s getting older and less able so it is a special gift for her.

 

 

 

 

 

As you can imagine, custom orders of both dogs and horses were popular.

 

 

 

 

 

And let’s not forget Fall leaves, Koi and the much mentioned whimsical giraffe!

 

 

 

 

My next post will be my experiences in “eco-dyeing.” I must confess that gathering the plants and materials is my favorite part…but you never know what you will get when you use nature’s bounty!
