"Time Has Come"

This artwork inspired me to write a companion poem "Time Has Come": "So many possibles, and dreams of what can be, now Shyama has chosen the divergent path as her karmic destiny. Her world remains slanted with rift and shift, obscure and dark from cycles of conflicting refrain - but she has transcended, to follow heart's urging that the time has come for change."

Practiced in Italy since the 1730's, Sgraffito is an old and beautiful "subtractive" method of creating images by scraping away a surface of medium in patterns and shapes to expose underlying layer(s) of color.

Oil pastel, 10" x 13" on acid free paper, matted to fit a 16" x 20" frame.

Price: $195 (with mat). Framing, taxes and shipping are extra.
