Natural pigments, gesso, and life's balance

 I have an obsession with eggs at the moment... 
Eggs and balance...    ..'Life's balance'
Some are quite tiny on recycled wood. 
Fixings to be attached and names to follow..

Do you see faces... In wallpaper or wobbly glass? I do all the time.
I found this beautiful 'lady' is looking up from the floor in the Fannie & Fox Gallery...

Maud.. A gift.

Up on the wall to photograph before I give it to my daughter for her birthday today.
This is how I will hand it to her... Wrapped simply in calico, like a medieval treasure.
Just to show you how tiny it is.. 15cm x 15cm..
And here is the photo I worked from.. Just a little artistic licence...

The 'Turquoise Fairy' is finished.

Just waiting to be waxed and strung.. Tomorrow's job.. 

Maud a tiny portrait in progress..

'Maud Love' - A turquoise fairy.
Working on a wooden board, rabbit skin gesso and natural pigments... And to top it all, it's tiny 15cm x 15cm...The challenges I set myself.. I sometimes ask myself why?
