Painted Birds on Silk

This just finished, framed and placed in a dining area window today, suspended between two panels of glass in a record frame. Joining in Paint Party Friday

14" x 14" Matthew 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?

Silk painting originated in China, going back to 2600 BC. Long before paper was invented/made, silk was a medium on which to paint. Silk is durable, portable, and readily rolled for travel.
