Wheel of the Year Silk is Done!

It's finally finished!! This is the second painting of the this piece! the first was ruined when the colors ran during steaming. This one is done in paints, Dynaflow & Setasilk, to prevent that. I just have to heat set the colors with an iron instead of steaming it.
The original drawing, by the author of a book of the same name, is primitive in nature, hence the simplistic faces & such. There are a couple of detail shots as well here.
There will be more silk paintings, I'm sure, but this is the last one of this particular design, I won't paint it again. I wanted to do this painting for a long time, now that it's done, it's time to move on.
