Necktie of the Month – April 2015!

ReneThis month I will be highlighting one of my hand painted silk neckties.  This particular tie was a gift from a very good friend of mine who just so happens to be an artist as well.  So please indulge me and allow me to give a shout out to René Shoemaker, painter on silk extraordinaire!  Rene is a really  talented artist whose main medium is silk and her focus has a definite architectural bend.  This necktie goes really well with my gray shirt, but looks just as fine with my white shirt, my sage green shirt, and my black shirt.  I first met René several years ago at an Annual Conference of the Special Libraries Association.  She was a solo librarian at an architectural library within the University of Georgia who has since retired and is now pursuing her art on a more full-time basis.  Now that she is no longer attending conferences, I am able to keep up with and follow her art via her blog, Coffee Cup Press.  One of these days I will just have to take a trip back to Georgia to visit.  Keep up the good work René!  Happy painting!
