This egg shell piece uses many materials: pins, glass bead medium, egg shell, beads, glass, wood, paint and fabric. The frame is made of hundreds of pin heads and resembles metal work. I see the female figures as completing a circle: one is leaving, one is receiving a helping hand and one is watching all of this happen. I've been experimenting creating this website by adding small pottery to some of the pictures to help define the scale of my work. I'd describe most of my painting as scaled for a modest home. I live in St. Paul, Minnesota where many months of the year are cold and snowy; this piece has the feel of a snowy day.
