BATIK Wax and Dye on Cloth: "Spider Web"
I received "BEST IN SHOW" for this batik that I showed at Esperanza Mansion, located near Keuka Lake. Art shows were held there for several years. I wasn't going to put this batik in the show because the wax didn't crackle as it should have. However, I needed 10 pieces for the show. I never expected to win the prize! Who knew that if I hadn't taken this batik to the show, I might not have won. So I always tell my students, "Don't throw anything away. It may be a Prize Winner!"
