The addition of a layer of soft gel mixed with iridescent gold, over a glaze of blue, brings out the texture. It reminds me of wet sand at the beach, mysterious marks made by creatures of all sorts.

Wings and Sky
|Working into the Textures|
On the wings, I am using Clear Tar Gel and Interference Gold (Fine) to go over areas that are not unified. In some cases, there is a hard edge on the acrylic skin, and in some cases, the skin is so thick it has crevices in it. I hope this will resolve those issues.

Ba - Painting of Steve
|Ancient Egyptian Concept of the Soul|
This project will require sealing the wooden substrate before I can add paint or collage. I am waiting for my sealant (GAC-100) to be delivered, but meanwhile ... I wanted to see if this image would fit. When my mother-in-law died, I felt her spirit at the gravesite, as a bluejay. Then when Steve died, a bluejay visited me just outside my computer room window. That did not happen before or since, so I felt it was Steve visiting me in soul form. The ancient Egyptians considered the Ba to be the form the soul takes after death: a bird with the head of the deceased.
