Wishing . 8x10 . 2010

1. natural light (near a window)
2. artificial interior lights
3. interior and UV lighting combined
4. UV lighting (blacklight)
5. no light (glowing in darkness)

Every so often I make a painting that seems to combine my imaginings of both the distant past and the distant future. Wishing is one of those. :o)

In this piece, I also included a top layer of finely dusted sand, so that the sand itself was displayed, rather than simply used for texture. You can see all the variances in each little grain of sand. There are different colors, sizes, shapes. It's like when you pick up a handful of sand on the beach and watch as it slips through your fingers to the earth below.

Wishing is available in my Etsy shop. Also! I'm having a 20% off sale on everything there. The sale lasts until January 28th, when I get back from Hawaii. Check it out. :oD

If you ever find yourself in the market for jewelry and want to talk about a trade, let me know. I'd love to have one of your originals (right now I am loving Dusk and Symmetry) but I have no budget for artwork at the moment. :-)

Happy Birthday! and have a great vacation!!!

Thanks so much!! xo
