Silk Painting

The vast majority of my customers want an embroidered atarah.  But I can also write the blessing by hand with silk paints:



I am fortunate to have a dear friend (and member of my adult bat mitzvah class) who is an extremely talented artist.  She has done quite a lot of silk painting for me.  The tallit below is her version of Asiatic lillies.


This is from a commissioned tallit depicting a modern Miriam..  I created the image of Miriam with silk scraps in an applique motif.  My friend painted the corners with the parting of the Red Sea, a shofar and three stars in the sky.

She is currently working on a set of corners for the 4 elements of the earth and I’ll have that picture posted soon.
