Stash Sunday - Thankful for....


Hand Painted on Silk
Originally uploaded by lasassone.
I have many things in my stash that I'm thankful for but this is one of 6 unique hand-painted silk pictures I inherited from my mother-in-law who was also a crazyquilter. They measure about 17" x 14" and the images appear to have been hand drawn on the silk and then hand painted. I think she may have bought these when she and her husband traveled to Japan after WWII. Perhaps even from a "street artist" if there were such people in the 1950's. If you click on the picture it will take you to my flicker album and you can see the other 5 pictures. I have kept these hanging in my closet for some time now; she had them rolled up. I've always thought I would make cq "frames" for them using the lovely oriental satin prints I have in my stash - another UFO I'm confessing to I guess!

These paintings are incredible. They look three dimensional. You
should find some way to present
them, like shadow boxes. They should not be lost.
