I’m about to get started on painting a silk scarf for a lovely friend of mine who is doing a wonderful barter with me. You see, she creates the most delicious home made fudges with all sorts of mind-blowing ingredients that are guaranteed to give you a high just thinking about them. Delicious liqueurs, chocolates, fruits, nuts, spices……
Her name is Laney DeJesus and you can visit her fabulous Facebook page here –Chocolate Moose Fudge. Make sure you ask to see her latest menu.
One day she asked for suggestions for some new fudge creations and I tuned in for some inspiration. I do love white chocolate, so I asked for that combined with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Cherries and some vanilla and cinnamon.
And guess what? Soon I’ll be the recipient of a package of this delicious concoction tailor-made to my request and in return one of my handpainted silk scarves will be flying across the Atlantic Ocean to her home.
How wonderful is that?
So today I decided to get started on my part of the project and as I was unpacking the blank, prehemmed silk scarf, it occured to me that I always do something with my silks that many of you might be unaware of.
And that’s why I made today’s video, to share just that. I’d love you to watch.
If this is new to you, see if you notice the difference when you paint. And when you visit Laney’s page, say hello to her from me.
If you’d like to find out more about my silk art work, you can get more details on my Inspired Art and Living blog. I’m open to commissions of all kinds.
