Continuing on with my fascination with hearts, I've finally finished a 6"x6" piece that has been sitting on my worktable for months.  This one has a blown egg in the niche with a heart (one of those things that expands when you put it in water) and lots of layers of paint, text, gesso and lava gel.  And best of all I made it for myself Grin





the top: "I have studied about the auricles of the heart, the extraordinary spectre"



the side: " A few moments of gorgeous delirium"

This is such a great piece. I love your mix of colors and textures. It's so interesting to look at from every angle. What a cool idea to use a broken egg shell!
