Buzz


8x8x3 ink,acrylic and gold paint
IF prompt: Buzz : fireflies do buzz when in groups and if the weather here holds out, we will have a second crop of Swiss Chard and fireflies to light our way tonight. Egads! January in New England? I enjoyed using irridecent gold paint for the "glow" on this one.
( This was done this summer for the "What is Home" exhibition in Portsmouth and won best in show at the Market 100 Exhibition. I have decided to add it to the shop because honestly, you can't keep em all.)

Don't forget to enter your artwork into the "Lovely Hearts" exhibtion and if you were looking to add the "Lovely Hearts" button, the code is found here. Hope you are all buzzy creating your Hearts! And do drop by again - Lovely Hearts entries will be shown here and here and here!
