Once I got the painting back from the dry cleaner, I had to finish it off-I took it to a client who is an excellent upholsterer and had him finish the edges, and adjust the mounting hardware brackets.  The final result is a hanging that is the largest Batik I have ever painted: approximately 78″ x 54″.  The painting has gone on to win the Congress Jewelers Award at the 2009 Southwest Florida Craft Guild’s “Exhibit of Excellence”, held at BIG Arts on Sanibel Island, Florida.
