glowing fireflies and meat-plants.

I just finished a painting for the Artist & Craftsman’s Glow Show – you should stop by any time this month!  Any opportunity to play with things that glow in the dark is a good one, and I decided to up the complicatedness by also making little clay lightning bugs and embed them in resin inside the painting.  I am still not convinced this was a good idea, but it was s u p e r fun.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM THIS PROJECT:

1. any inherently messy person (exhibit a: me) painting with glow-in-the-dark paint will unknowingly end up with it everywhere.  i went to bed last night thinking i was in a crime scene investigation.

2. resin has wanderlust.  sticky spots abound.

3.  dealing with resin means your house will smell like a meth lab for 72 hours.
