Happy Easter!

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

We have deep snow under the pine trees, but there is a whiff of Spring in the air.  I listen to the Russian Easter Overture for a reminder that Easter sometimes includes sleigh bells!   The three cupolas are an original fabric sculpture suppported by wooden bases turned from cherry.  They can earn their rent by serving as pincushions.

Wood provides a wonderful way to craft a shape for painting.  This candlestick carries two Easter Lilies and a 5″ coach-sized pillar candle with a ‘clean linen’ scent.    The design was burned and painted with acrylics on a ground of milk paint.
