Many eons ago I created designs for a swimsuit fabric designer. I've had my original hand painted silk samples in my closet all this time, waiting on inspiration as to what to do with them. Well this week I finally did it - I cut out some of the motifs and mounted them on stretched canvas, thus re-purposing them into mini paintings. The sizes range from 4 x 4 to 5 x 7. They are not meant to be 'serious' paintings by any means, but just fun snippets of summer whimsy. They'd be perfect for a kid's room or a beach house.
I'll be framing them with simple black frames like the one on the lower right, that you can just about make out. They will be available at Waverly Artist Gallery in Cary NC.
