Sea Change: From Sailing to Silks

This photo is of my boat Sea Change, which I sailed from Bud Inlet, Olympia, WA to Nanaimo Harbor, VAncouver Island B.C.

I sold the boat, but the reflections of sun and clouds on the waters are still in my mind and in my soul. Perhaps that is why I so love painting on silk and the Japanese system of tie dye called Shibari. The waves of color on the silk scarves I am dying remind me of the waves in the water, and the way the dye flows across the silk is so like the way water flows. This one is called Tidal Waters.

  1. What an adventure! It must have been hard to sell your boat.
    What Island do you live on in the puget sound?
