Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey has taken the ancient art of Chinese silk painting and made it her own. She calls it the “jazz” of painting, a blend of color and form rendered with liveliness and a practiced knowledge of her medium, which she first observed on a visit to Hawaii, and now renders with French dyes and silks from all over the world.
Going To The Sun 2008 was Cawdrey's largest silk painting to date, and was painted to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Glacier National Park's Going To The Sun Road.
Her whimsical panorama celebrates every iconic rare flower or shy animal the traveler in a historic Red Jammer might encounter on George Grinnell's Crown of the Continent.
