One Little Gem

Inca Inspiration
Well so much for my new beginnings. Almost as soon as I said it I was struck down. I was ill for a week! I had just started this piece but have only managed to finnish it today. I have made it for the Little Gem tombola.
It was inspired by Inca art originally but has wandered of a bit. The copper mushrooms represent the blades of sacrificial knives. I hope it gives the feeling of the Incas. I must now put away the sewing machine and get out the wax. Craft fair season is rapidly approaching and with sickness etc. I am getting behind.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you all. It makes such a change for us to have sunny weather. Usually the mere mention of a bank holiday is enough to make those rain clouds move in.
I have felt like I have been living in limbo for most of this year, with the illness and death of my father. I now hope I am ready to move forward. New beginnings, renewed energy and I hope more productivity.
Here is a picture of some encaustic eggs I made a couple of years ago. With all the house moving of the last two years I have not had them out on display. Thank you all for continuing to visit my blog. I do hope soon I will have something more interesting to post.
