Batik Painting-Lizard






















This was my first attempt to paint on batik during 2007.
I love the end result but I must confess that I should have been more careful while applying wax.
Well, have you spotted it? The white relief batch is here permanently. I can't undo it!
Anyway, I really treasure this experience and will plan to do at least another 12 this year!
(one for each month)
So stay tune!

Oh, lovely lizard! This really looks like fun. Kind of a zentangle.

At first glance, I thought it was a decorative silk throw pillow cover! This one's a beauty. I really like what you've done here.
The lizard glows against that green paint on batik. Beautiful art work! You are going to make one for each month? I can't wait to see the next one!
You should make pillow cases out of these :-)

Oh my GOODNESS! What a fabulous piece! Really fun. I love it!

What? There's a mistake here? I never would have known. I can't even spot it, unless you mean the white oval near the bottom. I thought that was intended. Honestly!

I would never have known that you made a mistake on this piece. It's quiet beautiful with the colors that you used and your design of the overall piece. I thought you were showing off something that you bought at the store! I think that you did an amazing job. I can't imagine the skill that is required to make a piece of art like this. It's very nice :)
