Hi Everybody! 

My name is Francine Dufour Jones and I love silk painting. This blog is about sharing some wonderful tips I have learned from experience and from other silk painters all over the world. Some tips come from discussions on Silk Painting Gallery Network (which I closed as most people go to FaceBook now), SPIN facebook page, my students in class online and in person, my wanderings on the Internet looking for information and of course trial and error experiments.

When I started silk painting many years ago; I was hungry for information. I took classes to read everything I could find on silk painting.  I had many learning experiences through years of trial, error, and success.  I created Silk Painting Gallery, Silk Painting Gallery Network recently Silk Painting Tips,  and Online Silk Painting Course. to learn and share new techniques. I am so amazed at the wonderful silk painters I have met along the way who are willing to share their tips and art. I am grateful to them.

I am also grateful for the time we live in and how the Internet has made the world a small place. I am in awe of the technology that allows us to communicate with each other. There is instant translation so that language is no longer a barrier. Wow….what magic!

I teach silk painting techniques in person and have an Online Silk Painting Class. The Online Silk Painting Class can be taken from any place in the world and at your own pace.
