Created for the 8 That Create Off the Hanger exhibit:
“aging gracefully”by Sue Bleiweiss
18″x 24″x 1 1/2″hand painted silk on black cotton

I used Superior Metallic thread which highlights the curved edges in the silk piece quite nicely and adds just a bit of sparkle depending on which way the light hits its and what angle you approach it from.
