Yes, it is true, this is an “old” silk painting… well, about 10 years old. It is one of the first I did and it has been through so much. My daughter has it in the States now. It has been worn as a scarf, a sarong and a blouse and has been a wall hanging as well. It has been worn to the beach with a bikini, to dinner with a lovely evening gown and to a funeral over the shoulders. It measures 44×44 and as you can see the colors have lasted and the silk is in wonderful shape!
