Santa Fe

 I left on trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico to attend a International Silk Painting Conference. This is some pictures of my first class beginning this morning. We are stretching our silk on a frame.

 Here we are out side spraying our silk with magic sizing starch which acts as a resist when we begin painting with dyes.
 Our teacher is Karen Sisstek and she has just shown us how to paint a iris.
 This is a newspaper picture of a dress that we are hoping to paint once we have learned what this class is teaching us which one of the students brought along to inspire us.
 This is the beginning of a poppy we will be finishing tomorrow.

Have a wonderful time Joan! Although, I know you will. Looks like the class is a blast.
