Ten Thousand Sparklepoints
Thursday, June 16th, 2011
This sparkly, shiny bit of art is dedicated to the wonderful Havi Brooks and Tara Swiger, both of whom use the term ‘sparklepoints’ in many brilliant and encouraging ways.
All the drawing was done with glitter gel pens, and of course the salt pools are their usual glittery selves, so the title made itself obvious to me early on. It’s definitely the sparkliest thing I’ve done to date, though Curiosity comes a close second — I wonder what it is about the really girly-pretty ones that makes me want to write on them. This one has the title at the top in copper glitter gel pen to match the starburst shapes scattered amongst the lines and spirals of the background.
Ten Thousand Sparklepoints, 7″x5″ mixed media on watercolor paper, $199, framed, with free shipping.
You can really see the light shining off the pen lines and salt below.
