Taking Flight… Again

Yea!!! My new supplies arrived yesterday! I felt like a kid at Christmas time as I cut through the packing tape and tossed out the plastic air-filled packing bags. My new paints had finally arrived and I could start work again! Please notice my much needed new brushes. The ones I have been using are…

A Lesson in Impermanence

Yesterday I worked the last butterfly on my Cerulean Flight piece and I was so excited that I had to constantly refrain from heat setting the work and moving on to the next stage of development.
