And here's the ikat warp painted piece. Gorgeous silk in to-dye-for colors. I think what I like best about this piece is that there are "flaws" in it -- painting boo-boos, a few threads in the middle on the left that got misplaced during painting so they're out of sequence with the other threads in that stripe. I'm finding that my so-called mistakes, which are really serendipitious occurrences, spark ideas for things I want to do on future pieces. How interesting! Mostly I'm liking that I'm giving myself permission to be human, not letting these imperfections stand in the way of my forging ahead.
