Out on a Limb

Worked hard on this one for the last couple of days, trying to have it finished to deliver to a jury tomorrow. Many layers of glazes, several sandings, more glazing, a couple of layers of paint for vibrancy and now it's nearly finished (my back is killing me after 12 hours straight working on this piece). The work has a lot more red in it than appears in the photo. I hope to give it a clear top coat of gel medium - hope it isn't sticky when I deliver it! Wish me luck.
Here's the preliminary sketch.

Cover Girl!

I'm thrilled to announce Tree of Life is featured on the cover of Arts Council of Surrey's May 2012 issue of Spotlight Magazine. You can pick up a hard copy by visiting any recreation centre or public library in Surrey this month. Thank you to Arts Council of Surrey, Ursula Maxwell-Lewis, Leah McCullough, and for doing such a great job of showing off my work!
