Being Inspired.....

As an artist, every day brings new challenges.  Some days the creativity flows with beauty and elegance....other days, frustration reigns because what the mind wants to put into the painting will not pass through the hand.  I truly understand that in all aspects of life, career and business, we all face frustrations.  I absolutely love the challenge of finding inspiration and then trying to put it into my paintings.

Silk Creations by Janey creates special commission pieces on a custom order basis.

These two comfort shawls were created for a customer who commissioned Silk Creations by Janey to paint a shawl using very calming and peaceful colors.  It is with honor that the order was accepted since the customer is gifting the shawl to a dear friend who was just diagnosed with cancer.  The customer wished for a very special piece that will give comfort and express the caring and love for the friend.

Custom Spacialle Series Comfort Shawl 22x90 Silk Charmeuse, 2015 CCIII
Custom Spacialle Series Comfort Shawl 22x90 Silk Charmeuse, 2015 CCIV
Since each piece is truly and original, each time a commission order is accepted, at least two pieces are created so that the customer can choose from the two or more pieces.  The comfort shawls are very large silk charmeuse thus only two are created for this type of custom order. The colors used are to create a peaceful and comforting piece that can be worn to provide warmth and love.

Thank you to all who came out to the First Sunday Festival on West Street in Annapolis on Sunday!

Silk Creations by Janey is so thankful for so many who came out to the First Sunday Festival on West Street!  It was a beautiful day in Annapolis.  The weather was perfect for the first Sunday in Annapolis.  A little warm, but the humidity was low and the sky was a clear and gorgeous blue.  I appreciate all who stopped by the booth and it was wonderful seeing old friends, getting help from others and meeting so many new people.  Many of the silks that were on display on Sunday that were not sold will now be available on Silkcreationsbyjaney.com  and my Etsy shop!!
