The pumpkin developed a leak, and this is why I put rosin paper down under live still lifes. I also have a flannel backed plastic table cloth on top of the hardwood table this still life resides on.

Making good use of the modern version of a wine cork and am carving them into stamps. They hold up quite well to the carving and to the stamping.
The stamps are a little on the "organic" side which makes them deliciously mine!

I was starting to think I had made a mistake adding the vertical lines to this piece, that there's no way they could occur naturally on cliffs, after all most color deliniation lines we see are horizontal in the forms of layers right? Wrong. My gut instinct was correct the proof came when I was browsing through some photos of the local limestone cliffs.
I was greatly encouraged when I came across this batch of photos this evening. So in addition to working on the computer tomorrow, I'll be pushing this hands piece even further.
Time to make some encrusted fabrics as well, this is a section of the same sandstone cliffs in the above photos.
