This book ADDIE SILK ART Plein Air Silk Painting in Europe is a delightful exploration of plein air painting on silk touring parts of Europe. The tools Addie uses are simple easily transportable and brilliant. This is a must have book on technique inspiration and the simple joy of painting your way through the countryside. Addie taught me through her classes on silk painting many years ago the deliciousness of silk dyes on silk. She has given me encouragement and been an inspiration throughout. I especially appreciate her use of non-toxic resists and dyes. With her husband she has developed a simple and cost effective way to steam the silks to set the dyes permanently. Her quiet natural approach to teaching and to painting encourages and supports all of her students. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to enrich their art form and become a plein air painter with silk. Peg

I am so excited. I just read Addie's new book ADDIE SILK ART Plein Air Silk Painting in Europe. This is the next best thing to being there with her and husband Mike. There are many places I feel connected to through her experience. She brings ancient castles to life along with her impression of statues animals people and flowers. Her colors are so vibrant you would love to reach out and touch them. This is an experience you should not miss if you love fine art." Dorothy
