The "what-if" Question in a Doorway...

I am a person who constantly asks that question "What, if...". Do you know what I mean?
I love to play with things, change colours, create new compositions out of old. I am constantly trying to materialize ideas, think about alternatives in a given context. So I have done here. I admit, this is a voluptious place and it requires a bit more than just the common.

I do paintings with the right context i.e. I create images with precious materials - silk is precious - isn't it? And in order to make an image even more precious I mount it in a frame that would fit into any precious environment - such as this one.

If you want to see details of the silk painting please check this link. It belongs to the Magic Landscapes series.

Yes, indeed silk is precious!!! How could anyone not think so...especially lovely in tones of russet, burgundy and plum...

Petra, all of your Angkor pieces are truly beautiful and a great inspiration...

Splendor, thanks for the comment and your lovely compliment. Oh - yes silks and velvets are wonderful materials - but believe me there ARE people who just don't care - better for us then - isn't it?
