"Wilma"

I just felt like posting a piece of art this morning. This is a piece I created that was inspired by the art of Sharon Tomlinson. She uses napkins in the most amazing ways. You may have seen her article in one of the latest issues of "Cloth, Paper, Scissors". I had a suspicion that the top layer of napkins would work beautifully with beeswax so I gave it a try and I was happy with the result. I'm still in the experimental stages but find it quite exciting. This piece is called "Wilma". I chose this name because it means "protector" and I imagined that the sister on the left was the oldest and felt very protective of her younger sibling on the right.
