This flamingo-themed silk painting is hand-colored with deep and brilliant hues. I call it my Birds of Paradise design because of the flamingos and birds of paradise flowers. Other tropical plants on this piece are the royal poinciana flowers and branches, and fragrant pink stargazer lilies.

The design process involves sketching and sketch transfer to silk cloth. Then a resist is used to lock in color areas. In this silk, I have used gold resist. The dyes I choose change for each piece. This piece took a total of 3 days and about 15 hours. My website shows a time-lapse video of the painting process.

This listing is for the exact silk painting shown with flamingos, stargazer lilies, royal poincianas,and birds of paradise using gold resist. It is framed in gorgeous raw cedar wood.

Every silk piece that I do is a unique piece. You may request your own color palette and design theme, as well as your choice of resist. The popular and traditional wax batik resist, or a metallic gold or silver resist. Each is made to order in 10 - 14 days.

Silks requested as unframed fabric artwork are $279.99. My silks wear beautifully, and you will receive wonderful compliments on your unique and one-of-a-kind wearable artwork. Hand wash, air dry, cool iron.

Approximate silk dimensions 14 x 68 inches*. Framed dimensions 19.5 x 74.5**

*Unframed silks ship easily. Your silk will arrive packed and rolled in tissue.

**Due to the size of framed artwork, this item is available by truck delivery or pick-up only. Cost to ship varies between $300-$700 with a standard carrier such as UPS. My own hand-delivery service varies based on distance from my studio. Please call me to talk about our options. Thank you.
