Caroline is still at home due to the big fire at her school. Today we decided to make a piece of art for the principal's new office, as that was among the buildings totally destroyed. Since part of Caroline's Chinese name means "Phoenix," she is well-acquainted with the symbolism of the phoenix rising from ashes and she decided that would be a wonderful theme.
Caroline drew this picture of a phoenix, which we enlarged to about 36" x 36".
We transferred it to a piece of silk and drew the outline with Jacquard resist.
And then Caroline got to work with Dyna-flow paints.
She's done the drawing and painting...my job will be the sewing. Caroline is so excited about giving this to her beloved principal!
