So I'm still playing here with my buddy Nancy. We created
Starfish + Kelp which is one of the few remaining pieces 
from our former exhibit.

She etched and blasted the glass, whereas I 
painted the reverse of the pane with acrylics 
and then applied gold leaf. The piece has incredible
depth from an added bottom layer of a mirror.

What truly made the project fun, was the unknown factor. 
After a discussion of subject matter, one would take 
the piece to start off and create an image. Then in turn, hand 
it over to the other to finish off.
