Batik

Hadley Holiday is one of my favorite artists. Maybe it’s her fluid mark-marking or her use of color. Maybe it’s that so many of her paintings have a textile/fabric quality. These batik-like paintings are just exquisite.

Of course, actual batik fabrics are pretty fabulous. Just the right graphic in any room.

Those paintings are amazing! I really need to check out more of her work. I'd love to know what her artistic process is like. I'm also in love with that piece of fabric that's fifth from the bottom. Love the classic batik look!
