The Green Season

This is a portion of an exceptional silk ! I started out wanting to do a line of leaves and vines on either side of a piece of silk measuring 1.4 x 1.5 meters (55 x 60 inches) to be made into a dress. I always to my silks free hand, just start drawing and I gooooo !! My son (15) suggested I fill the entire silk with the leaves and vines. I took his advice and it turned out divine. Now, I am not sure what it will be in the end…. bed covering, strapless evening gown, sarong??? It is shimmery and shiny and the leaves are very realistic. As soon as I decide what it will be, I will post more photos !! (This photo was taken while wet after steaming).
