ORIGINAL SILK PAINTINGS
Hand painted on pure white silk
Handpainted on pure silk, these original paintings are stunningly bright and vibrant and make a beautiful addition to any home. Originals are for indoor use only.
The original paintings are made in two different ways:
The first way – I mount some of my silk originals on canvas so that they are ready to hang. The borders are all hand painted in acrylic paint and done with a palette knife so they are textured.
The finished piece is fully varnished and safe anywhere in the house including kitchens and bathrooms. They are non fade and simply stunning.
The second way – I sell the paintings unframed and unmounted, just a loose silk. They are ready for you to frame traditionally, maybe with a matboard. They come with hang-tags at the top, for unframed display, which you can simply pick off if you are framing them.
Once you frame them under glass, they are non-fade. If you do not frame them under glass, they might fade slightly over time – but they are treated so fading will not be pronounced unless you hang them unframed in a sunny area.
We courier all over New Zealand and we can also easily send them overseas upon request – it’s not that expensive to ship these.
Please see the two galleries below for options & read descriptions carefully. Images can be enlarged by clicking on them. The items in the galleries below are ready to send now.
I can also paint you something to order ( just indicate what design you like, from any page of this website) and post it to you as loose un-mounted silk, complete with full framing instructions. Sizes are limited to the sizes you see here in the galleries as I paint on pre-set sized stretching frames.
Allow 8 – 12 weeks approximately for a commissioned finished unframed original painting, however be reminded this may be several months longer during our busy tourist season from October to May.
Please ask for a quote to send any item overseas – regular airmail is economical & reliable, but carries no insurance for original art. I can quote on fast courier as an alternative for most countries which covers full insurance and tracking. Usually I do just use regular mail.
My original silk paintings are signed and come with a certificate of authenticity .
