I started glazing my little creatures.
Pale ivory with little specks
like a tiny bird's eggshell.
Aqua and blue from the deepest of oceans.
Pink and dark rose from the inside of an
empty seashell drifted ashore.
Gray like the smooth, round beach pebbles slowly
shaped in the waves of the ocean.
I painted on my colors with tiny brushes.
Some layered on top of each other while
others were left alone.
I am free to explore this in my own way.
At my own terms.
Not held back by convention
or thoughts of what doesn't
work or what you cannot do.
The beauty of teaching oneself a new craft
urchins, corals and barnacles
an army of sea creatures
Right now they are in the kiln
Thousands degrees to transform the
pastels to something else.
To what, I do not know yet.
I have to wait patiently until tonight.
