I painted the paper with gesso,
used prismacolor pencil, a blending exercise.
The background is done in inktense sticks and then a water brush taken to it.
some of you may know Abigail
from Rusted Wings Blog
It was her birthday yesterday
we shared a lovely day in Glacier National Park on Lake McDonald
she has always wanted a cuff
so I made this for her
there is something so special about making gifts for people we love
our hearts pour into the gift
filling it with treasures of light and love to bless their lives
I think it might actually be a gift to ourselves to fill gifts with love!
Happy Birthday Abigail!
