Lady Slipper / 519

Orchids abound here in Hawaii. Just pop one on a tree, and they grow! The lady Slipper is also the state flower of Minnesota, where I was born and grew up loving being plopped in a tree!

Dye on silk with wax resist. Created to make fine art silk originals accessible to more people (no matt, frame, glazing required). Lightweight, colorful addition for many wall spaces. Silk is mounted on acid free foam core, adding matt board to the back to finish the piece nicely, then combining the two pieces with beads using strong thread. Finished off with a glued in sawtooth hangar. Photo has white wall showing between the three pieces.
