Three Crosses

 
This piece is one of my favorites, especially because it was extremely intuitive. No step was thought out in advance; it all just “flowed”.

 
It began as a little paint doodle, if there is such a thing:

That black stuff is micaceous iron oxide — it feels like fine sandpaper. Awesome — I love texture! :O>

 

I liked certain parts more than others, so I added some texture around my favorite areas.
This is a clear gel medium — white when wet, clear when dry. However, I have painted silver fluid acrylics on top of the dry texture in the second pic:

Next it received the addition of its namesake: 3 crosses. The two texture crosses are glass bead gel — again white when wet, clear when dry.

Finally, it received its last bits of paint: blue and gold. This pic shows it still wet.
