Bold and Bright
bold and bright

This hand painted silk chiffon scarf puts a vacation in the every day. I painted this several years ago and I never put it out into the market. I also have not made another like it. It is truly unique! Finally I gathered this photo into the same file as several others taken a few weeks ago and tonight I placed this scarf for sale on etsy.com. Sometimes it takes a whole concentration and determination to put my work out for sale, but it is time that some of my art makes a move into others' lives.
Today I spent the whole day focused on reviewing and selecting those top artists to be awarded the Creative Arts grants from the Vermont Arts Council. Interesting work, and indeed it is work, to carefully grade and rank artists work and proposals, and it is another job without pay...I am good at acquiring those. So, here I am trying to make something pay from the day...perhaps someday. I don't complain often. Perhaps I am tired. This scarf is more bold and bright than I am feeling at this late hour. I wish you all well who have come to pass this way.
