I find it mesmerizing when I use raw silk as my canvas. The extreme nubbiness of the silk, painted in a variety of background designs, is the perfect texture to show my oil pastels. It becomes a three dimensional effect when the oil pastel....soft as lipstick...holds only to the nubs letting the underpainting show through. I love experimenting with the feeling of motion in my paintings and have often been told they remind folks of pointillism or even Van Gogh...so....Flaky Flaky Night!
