Just a quick update on the copyright issue & the stolen image. Seems the person hit the wrong button & uploaded my image instead of another of whom she did have permission to use. I'm technology challenged myself so I can understand that. She apologized profusely & promptly took my image down, that's all I can ask for. Accidents happen, we all know, at least this time, it was an easy fix & an honest mistake. By the way, the copyright notice in the previous post still applies. If anyone wishes to use any images from this blog or any other I create, just ask. Moving on . . .

Please note, ALL of the images on this blog are copy written by me, Cathy Sparks, PhD,the artist who produced them. They may not be used without written permission in any way, manner or form,electronic, print or otherwise.
I just discovered someone stole an image from this blog, claiming it as their own. It made me mad that someone would stoop so low as to do this. I have written the person about it, as well as demanded they remove it from their site. All I can do is put this I writing here & hope it doesn't happen again.

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.
