These lovely cotton shawls and scarves are woven by a men's collective in Java, Indonesia. They were a big hit last year, and I have had many requests for more. Hence a large selection at this years Atomic Holiday Bazaar, this weekend (December 10-11th).
They are very fun to paint, especially the ones with the open work borders. The multiple square design ones are lively as well. You can see more photos and commentary on my Pamdesign face book page (link above). The scarves flow nicely, but also keep their shape and keep a perky crisp shape around the neck, which I personally like very much.

This is a very large, custom floorcloth for a kitchen. Since the shape is a bit special, I made a paper template to make sure it follows the contours of the cabinetry exactly.
It measures about 16 feet long, so finding a wall to stretch the canvas on was crucial. Luckily I was able to do that!
The design is very simple, however a lot of measuring and precision was part of the process, making a solid pattern I then could go over the top of with a lot of paint and texture.
Lemons are a theme in the Mediterranean style kitchen and adjoining dining room. They make a nice addition to the expanse of painted tile design.
