fair flying

The centre of the butterfly egg has really lovely raised texture and height—-partly planned and partly serendipity in attaching the whole.

Four hours yesterday and four today have resulted in most of the bees and pollen grains being done, the centre holes of the butterfly egg attached and the final vision for what this will be is cemented in my head.I had to push through to get enough done to photograph for our next Contextural show at the Alberta Craft Council in January. My eyes are so tired, but my fingers, while sore and pricked, are loving the textures.

      Thank you, Wendy. It’s like the drying gardens in snow right now, beautiful in its own way.
