"Garden Party" in MGA"s show Awakening on now!

Here is the finished product from my recent silk painting workshop. This was accomplished using dye and gutta. Sorry for the flash. You can see it now at 197 Main St. Unionville in the show "Awakening" at the McKay Gallery. I assisted with photographing the show to put onto the MGA website.
