Red + Gold = Scarf

Over the holidays, I was commissioned to create a piece for Judith Joseph, the chair person for the Annual Breakfast with Santa, a charitable organization benefiting the Haitian American Children in Miami areas. The piece was presented to her at the event that was held on December 20 at JW Marriott Brickell in downtown.

All I was told by the co-chair person, Dr. Dominique Saliba, was to “…create something, anything but it has to be red and gold, in the spirit of Christmas. It is for Judith, you know; she works so hard for this event every year – this was their 3rd – and I believe she deserves something interesting and I want you to make it”.

We ended up with a 70” X 25” red on gold painted silk scarf. It was not easy to paint on silk but an endearing and rewarding journey to say the least. There is always a first.
