I always incorporate symbols of hope. Even in my artwork that depicts the darkest subject matter. This piece features the bluebirds of happiness and the rainbow of hope lifting the faded and forgotten, old lace, away to a better place.

Time for an intervention. In today’s video, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder gives us something to aspire to by showing us what’s in her home fridge — and why. Since she specializes in beautifying foods, each item she stocks (from kale to almonds) has qualities that improve hair and/or skin.
Here are a few pic's of one of my first polymer vessel, stash jars.
I call it Saving Grace. The decal began to dissolve with the alcohol inks. My three graces were melting away! Fortunately, I was able to save enough of it and make it work. I like the distressed look I got with layers of alcohol ink, Genesis heat set paint, liquid Kato polymer, fine glitter, and metal leaf. The mixed media techniques used on this piece were the precursors to my Belle Pastiche and Graffiti Garden techniques that use many layers of mediums as well as some distressing.
Notice how well I have hidden the seams. The seal on this vessel is so tight that it makes a nice pop when you tape the lid off. That took decades of practice!
