I call it " Concep`tion" because the colored squiggles reminded me of sperm. Then if you look just off center to the upper right, you'll see a round orange form which could very well be the egg off in the distance.
OK, that's what my imagination conjured up.
Some might think the images appear to be balloons.
Whatever, you want to imagine is fine with me. This silk is pinned to a foam core board for display.
Come see what other beautiful original art I have in my shop at http://mysticsilks.etsy.com/

You will have a difficult time,
Why?, you may ask.
If you search under art on etsy, you will see jewelry, maybe pottery,handmade lampshades, etc. And etc,. could very well be a painted dust pan, tagged as an 'original painting'.
The fine art artists on etsy have been , well close to but not quite, begging etsy administration to create a new category called 'fine art'.
And only true original paintings, photography, sculptures, water colors, acrylics, prints, would be tagged as 'fine art', and go into this category.
We would not be buried under tons, and tons of stuff called art.
This link http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6105708 is an forum thread posted on etsy last April 4th, 2009 with a petition link http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/artonetsy/index.htmlto draw etsy's attention by the number of signatures (682),on this petition.
One of the petitioners sent an etsy convo to Rob Rokali, again bringing this situation to the big man's attention on etsy. To sum it up this is the response:
+++++++++by Rokali profile shop contact:"Yes, we're working towards an art marketplace, though we don't have a timeline yet. I agree with you, and I've passed your convo along to Amy. Hang in there."++++++++++++
"Hang in there," the man says, " Hang in there."
Is anyone's arms hurting from all the 'hanging in there?'

To this silk scarf I embellished it with round objects that appear to be bubbles but are really intended photons.
The remainder of the silk scarf I left just as it was , with the wavy lines of orange, yellow, and red: They remind me of waves of energy. Then I pinned it to a foam core board.
The resulting silk painting has a great feeling of energy to it.
Come see it at my etsy store: http://mysticsilks.etsy.com
