What I'm working on...
This is the current project... by no means is it finished. A few things that my Pop sent from China, where he currently lives... I actually started this one a few months ago and had been working on it here and there... now, I really want to finish it, so I am back to working on it. I'm having some 'technical difficulties' and feel a bit stuck as to how to proceed?? Not sure what to do with the plates and the tassles on the ornaments have been a real headache to me... I think I've painted over them at least three times! But, this one is 'sittin' on me and I'm compelled to finish it before I move on to another project. I have WAY too many 'almost done' and 'halfway through' projects laying around, making clutter. So, I guess I'm cleaning up a bit by trying to actually FINISH a few things. The photo is pretty accurate, maybe slightly dark... any suggestions?
The blue plates, by the way, are pretty groovy...the yellow deisgn (dragons and stuff), is actually a wire 'sculpture' that sits upon the plate, I am guessing it's fired on?... it's stacked, twisted, and sculpted WIRE and then covered with gold leaf (gold foil).
I'll post an updated picture of the painting when (and if) it's (ever) completed!
