Jazz Art II: How to Acquire an Original Silk Painting

Last updated on January 20th, 2019 at 09:34 pm

In yesterday’s blog post we introduced the Jazz Art collection of original silk paintings by Vermont artist Linda Marcille.  Today– a little more about how silk paintings are created, a short bio of the artist and information on how to acquire this remarkable collection at a “Vermont price”.

About Silk Painting

Who is this female jazz singer performing with a quintet?  Ella?  Sarah?  Nina?

Linda Marcille:

“Silk painting is an ancient Asian art form and it is very unique and mysterious. The silk itself is seemingly so fragile yet it is one of the strongest fibers in nature. There is also a serendipitous quality to painting on silk with dyes. The process never allows the artist to be fully in control or to know exactly the effect that will be created.

Painting on silk is an incredibly time-consuming and unforgiving medium. Just one drop of misplaced dye, or a broken resist line, and days of painstaking work are ruined. As challenging as painting on silk is, however, it is also one of the most rewarding art forms because the two-hour steaming process joins the fiber-reactive dyes molecularly with the silk, so the dyes take on the silk’s iridescent sheen. It is because of this union that silk paintings are able to produce an awe-inspiring range of reflective color that no other medium is capable of creating,”

Linda’s paintings feature the highest quality steam set French dyes from Europe, the finest crepe de chine silks from China and a one of a kind resist made only in New Zealand. Linda’s work appears in many publications. Her Jazz series has been showcased by the Guild of Silk Painters and featured in the Spring 2010 issue of their Journal.

In 2012 Linda and her husband, Don, built a beautiful home and studio on 36 wooded acres in Westminster, Vermont where they are slowing down and living a more simplified life.  The creative process has been a powerful healing force in Linda’s life, she strongly believes in the healing properties of art, both for the viewer and the creator. She feels that art must be made available to those with chronic & terminal illness as part of their treatment plan. Linda has been battling an autoimmune disease caused by advanced neurological Lyme disease since 2000.

How to Purchase Linda’s Paintings

Do you have the perfect spot in your home for this remarkable series of Jazz paintings on silk?  We are proud to be able to offer them for purchase here at Stonehurst over the next couple months.  These are the only jazz paintings Linda has done out of an extensive body of work over many years and she will not be creating more like them.  They are an investment sure to increase in value.

The original paintings are priced very reasonably for the person or family who will cherish and care for them.  We would prefer to sell them as a set or perhaps split them into two sets, if necessary.  Dimensions are 29″W x 25″H, matted and framed (actual image approximately 20″W x 15″H).  For additional information or to purchase please call Peggy, Liz or any of our sales team at Vermont Woods Studios.  Looking to buy just one?  We’ll talk.

This is an investment opportunity of a lifetime for jazz lovers and art collectors!
