Surfacing; banner on silk.


Out of stock

This painting measures 11.5 x 60 inches.  Note that all taxes are included and shipping within Canada is free.


This original painting is done on habotai silk by hand. One of my favourite subjects is the octopus; such a fascinating creature! This painting has been spoken for but I will replicate the design for interested clients.  As I always hand paint my silk, the results will not be an exact copy, but that’s the fun of originals!   The painting will be prepared for hanging with loops to attach it to your choice of hanger.  After the initial drawing (done with gutta), I use acrylic paints to complete the picture.   This makes the painting light-resistant, so that it can be hung in a window, as a “faux stained glass” feature in your home!  There is no need to frame the painting.  The silk is tough; the Chinese used to use it for armour, after all!  Care of the piece is simple.  Creases can be removed with a steam iron on the silk setting (be sure that the signature is backwards on the ironing board), and it can be cleaned in cold water with gentle cleanser and laid flat to dry.
