Another drawing in a new series, Pearls On A String, this piece incorporates many of the elements I have been working with lately. Playful and whimsical mark making, layered painting and drawing, as well as collage, embroidery and beads, which all come together to create a beautiful little meditative drawing.

The drawing in the lower portion alludes to writing, a very playful layering of lines in India ink. The collaged drawings in this piece are drawn with India ink on dry used teabags, which are then dipped in beeswax and sewn to the handmade paper. A string of pearls enters from the the upper left, falling gently on the page. I loved making this lovely and delicate piece...hope you enjoy looking at it!

The artwork on handmade paper, measuring 5x5", is mounted onto a piece of masonite the same size. The piece will come to you carefully packaged and ready for hanging anywhere you need a bright spot in your home...or give this piece as a gift to a loved one!

Please remember the piece contains beeswax, which will make it delicate...please don't leave in the heat or hot sun!

Thanks for looking! Enjoy!
