Here is my latest piece, recently completed: 24 X 24 canvas.  It took me months to finish, from the first mind image that came to me in my sleep, to the silver bowl glued to the table.  This was a challenge, as it was the first piece I have made, with intention, with no model.  The table alone took a lot of planning (and erasing!).

The bricks are actually  "mortared" with spackling compound and a trowel.  The "holes" are pieces of cardboard, peeled back to expose the interior, and almost-dried-up wood icing.  The colors are Golden Fluid Acrylics, heavy-bodied acrylics, craft paint, and pastels.  The bowl is silver-leafed.  Truly a mixed-media piece!

This canvas has special meaning.  It holds a lot of symbolism and spirituality for me.  What do you see in it?
