You can add your own VOTE here https://www.talenthouse.com/i/416/submission/135612/4536bce2 I voted for Beth’s shawl to win and you can too!
The talented Beth Surdut created her storyteller shawl Night Bird especially for Stevie Nicks. Hand-drawn with gold-flecked resist and hand-painted with French dyes on habotai silk, the painted area measures 22 x 72 inches and is enhanced on both ends by the addition of a varying 7 inch double ruffle of chiffon interwoven with white ribbon. In the “black ink darkness,” a lone snowy owl limned by starlight flies over a blue and “silver spring” running through cobalt and amethyst mountains. Nightbird: And when I call/ Will you walk gently through my shadow/ The ones who sing at night. Quotes from Stevie Nicks songs: Sorcerer, Silver Spring, Nightbird
Lovely of you to post this, Marie. Some confusion: the link for voting is this one https://www.talenthouse.com/i/416/submission/135612/4536bce2
The one you left a comment on was only a “like” page.
OK, Beth, thanks, I will correct in the blog post, and share again on Facebook, Twitter etc.
It’s a gorgeous piece! You are very skilled and talented!
