What are you most proud of? The colors are so alive. It is beautiful from a distance but becomes more beautiful as you look at it up close.

So contemporary. So interesting. You have gotten the concept totally. Look from afar and then up close. Drawing the viewer into the art. Wow.

Did you dye this material yourself? Great colors and shades adds to the look. You have neet ideas and style. Love your work.

Yes i did. You never know what you will get when you mix colors on wet fabric. I used Tsukineko inks-Chocolate, Tangerine, Lemon, Cerulean Blue and Sky Blue. The chocolate is what came out so orange. The other 4 colors made quite a bit of green.
