The pigments in this piece have been mixed with iridescent pearl paint, and I laid the colors on layer by layer. A soft purple/magenta shows through the blue layers, but this unfortunately doesn't show up so well in the photographs.
This painting is the masthead for my upcoming show at the Burk Gallery in Seattle, WA:

The snow whispers about me,
And my wooden clogs
Leave holes behind me in the snow.
But no one will pass this way
Seeking my footsteps,
And when the temple bell rings again
They will be covered and gone.
-Amy Lowell, "Falling Snow"
