Well, what can I say except, a great big thank you!!!
Let me introduce you to Janine Maves / Althea Peregrine who is an extremely talented and versatile artist who has been a silk painter for over 20 years. Amongst her paintings on silk is this wall hanging pictured below.
The painting is done on silk shantung and is lined with beige silk dupioni. Drawing from medieval illuminated manuscripts, it features the lion, symbol of Mark the Evangelist, and Celtic knot and braid motifs in subtle pastel colours.
The textile measures 29" wide by 34.5" long. When mounted on the hanger, it is 41.5" wide x 37" long and is truly awesome!
Other works take their form in mixed media collages, assemblages, and paintings on canvas.
As if this is not enough! Janine has another shop on Etsy called Talking Dog Productions where she concentrates on art cards, jewellery, and unique hand-painted accessories. So, maybe now you can understand why I feel so honoured to have been chosen for this award by someone who is so talented!
