Made It: A Border of Memory

Another very big piece.  Complicatedly simple.
A Border of Memory40 inches tall x 66 inches wide
 This little piece was my inspiration.  This was one of the first non-clock orzo sketches I tried out three or four years ago.  It's about 8 x 8 inches.
scrap wood, paint, tea bag papers, vinyl
 The layers were all shades of black with a hint of crimson here and there.  I dragged a scrub brush through the wet paint to add texture.

All white vinyl.
 As I went along I decided to start adding in reflective silver orzos into the design.  Without a flash or other bright light source it's barely noticeable, but if you use a flash on your camera you get a whole new perspective.
 Look at that glow!  Magical.

The ridges really show up in this picture.  If you buy it you can touch it all you want.
