I began this piece with rust stained cloth pieces and pretty much after first steps, I found myself in "rescue" mode. I ran into big trouble trying to apply a rusty/bronze paper with my iron...very mottled and it continued from there...after about a hundred attempts at this or that, I finished (quit). The beads do add a nice sparkle and I think I've come through this effort with inspiration to continue creating with ancient walls as my subject. Something I'm willing to consider down the road. All in all, I'm ready to clean the studio table and begin yet another exploration.

This is the first of my just play around and explore time. I began with some poorly printed leaves and over printed with a blue green paint. Some leaves are machine stitched over but most are hand embroidery using a mixture of different colored threads. Fun creating a temple with gold leaf and gold paint. While I was busy with this, I had some fellows paint my kitchen! Now I'm starting on a sorta grid pattern and I have some other fellows coming to clean up this little overgrown yard. Spring is moving along nicely!
