This was the result of a day of play… I took I drawing I did years ago (for a greeting card) and transferred it to a piece of silk using graphite transfer paper. I then added the details with fine line pens and played around with colors…

This painting was made using pen and ink on silk and then painted with Inktense pencils and acrylic. The final piece is a raveled edge 8.5″ × 11″ piece of silk mounted to watercolor paper.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Great idea, Angela… the silk must make the colors really glow in person. Like the idea of the raveled edge in mounting, too!

  • Thanks, my friend! The silk can be challenging to the inner perfectionist who resides at my core. LOL It’s kinda like they teach people using Copic markers on fabric… they warn you not to get to close to an edge because the color will really travel on the cloth… well that same thing happened to me when I tried to add color to this drawing using Inktense pencils… I was screaming “STOP!” as I activated the color with a waterbrush and that water took the color wherever IT wanted to… UGH! So glad you like this! The colors do pop on that silk. Don’t know whether or not Jacquard coats their fabric or not; paint and ink on their products really pop! I tend to ravel all the edges of my fabric… think I like texture so much that I got in the habit of doing that years ago. Hugs!
