My "Healing Visions" series of paintings was born out of my having to take a break from painting on silk for health reasons. After having my photo taken to John of God in Brazil I started having these powerful images come through me as I sketched in my sketchbook and I intuitively felt that they were very healing. I was desperate to paint them, however, because of my illness I lacked the strength or energy to paint them in the traditional manner. After being brought before John of God I discovered that I could paint digitally on my iPad and I was totally blown away by the quality of work that can be created using only my fingertips or rounded stylus to "paint" on the iPad surface.
I consider it a huge blessing that I can finally paint...
UPDATE: I am currently experimenting with other mediums including photography and stitch on cloth while taking a break from the demands of silk painting due to Lyme and autoimmune health issues.
Linda Eaton Marcille is an award winning artist whose paintings on silk have been sold internationally. Linda creates her silk paintings using the highest quality steam set French dyes, the finest crepe de chine silk from China and a one of a kind resist made only in New Zealand. She has taken an ancient Asian art form and infused it with her own joyful and whimsical style.
Painting on silk is an incredibly time consuming and unforgiving medium, just one drop of misplaced dye or a smudged resist line and days of painstaking work are ruined....
